Honoring of the life and legacy of Congressman John Lewis, Terri Lipsey Scott and others have organized Voting is Our Voice, a city-wide initiative designed to remind St. Petersburg citizens that democracy, in Scott’s words, “is the one thing that we should always be able to hold true to. And having the opportunity for our voices to be heard cannot, and will not, be denied.”
Taking place Saturday (Aug. 15) at 11 a.m., just prior to the Aug. 18 primary election. For “Roll to the Polls,” those who have yet to mail in their ballots are asked to meet at Al Lang Stadium, to take part in a ceremonial parade to the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections’ office, on 1st Avenue N.
Have you been counted in the 2020 Census yet? This quick survey can be taken safely from home —online or by phone — and your answers will help shape your community’s next 10 years. Census data guides how hundreds of billions of federal dollars are distributed for the things we all rely on, like health care, education, highway construction and more. Getting counted also means getting fair and accurate political representation. Remember: census responses are secure, confidential and protected by law. Make sure your community gets its fair share: Take the census today at My2020Census.gov or by calling 844-330-2020. Census takers will visit homes that haven’t yet responded in the summer and fall. Help #MakePinellasCount!
The Black Lives Matter and Peace and Justice Demonstration continued on 54th Ave South last Sunday night, August 9th. There were 22 participants. Joining the group were 5 young people from the Quaker Meeting. This is an important way to inspire hope in the community and to work to create an anti-racism society.
All are welcome Sunday evenings from 7:30-8:00 p.m. at the church. Know justice, know peace!
This is another in a series of mid-week hymns for you to sing along with at home if you wish. It’s also another remake of an earlier recording that was originally audio only, now a video.
This is the quintessential English melody as adapted by Martin Shaw, one of the most famous English church composers of the last century. Your mind can’t help but conjure up an image of a 50’s BBC television drama as soon as your hear it.
Still finding my way even though this pandemic has been going on since March. Finally starting to settle in on whatever my contribution might be to the weekly Corona Sabbath, now plus a mid-week hymn video recording, and as of today, “Sunday Morning Music.” No better way to start than with one of my favorite Irish tunes.
