"The Advocate, the Holy Spirit, will...remind you of all that I told you." John 14
Jesus promises his continuous reminding presence through the Holy Spirit, which is a good thing because it can be easy to forget what Jesus said and how it applies to our lives. He also leaves His heavenly peace to us, so we can walk through life unafraid. As good stewards we show Jesus in our lives by walking in his peace, letting his word guide our lives.

Sustaining Earth, Our Island Home
“I would like to share with you an initiative from the National Episcopal Church's office of the Most Rev. Michael Curry. "Sustaining Earth, Our Island Home" tackles the Episcopal Church's pledge for the care of creation and provides support for individuals and parishes seeking to take those incremental steps toward living in a more sustainable, moral manner when it comes to the impact we have upon the Earth and our capacity to continue to live on it. To paraphrase Bishop Bascom the biggest environmental problems are not biodiversity, water usage, or climate change but greed, selfishness, and apathy.
To learn more about this program, please visit http://www.sustainislandhome.org/ and enroll yourself in this program. Please remember to list St. Aidan’s, Olathe as your parish. Our Bishop will reward the parish with the most participation.”
