St. Aidan's Events and Happenings:
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ONE AND ALL!
Please Bring Your Stewardship Pledge Card to Church!
(It came to you in the mail recently and looks like this:)
A big "Thank You" to all who have participated in our Stewardship campaign to date. We are over half way to our goal of $200,000. I promised a quick and painless campaign this year but that is only possible if you cooperate, so I am hoping this is the last appeal. Please send in your pledge card or put it in the offering plate this Sunday. Pledging to your church is a wonderful way of celebrating Thanksgiving -- a way of thanking God for all our many blessings. You might read Mark 12:41-44 to see Jesus's thoughts on the subject.
BLESSED IS THE ONE WHO GIVES JOYFULLY.
The Malibu Christmas Creche:
St. Aidan's Vestry member Shawn Ewbank and wife Lauren Kilroy are the proud parents of Anis Grace Ewbank, their second child, born a healthy 8 pounds, eight ounces, on Friday, November 17. Big sister Ellie now has a play partner. Congratulations!
Rev. Ed Milkovich Ordination Set for Jan. 13.

Ed continues leading an evening prayer with lectio divina every Wednesday, 7 pm, in the St. Aidan's Sanctuary. The class is free to all. For more information contact Rev. Ed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Simple Way to Help
Greetings Sisters and Brothers in Christ.
The topic came up in the last St. Aidan's staff meeting that we presently have nothing to offer those who are in need that visit the church. This was not always the case. For instance, several years ago, Fred Cornett would lead a group that would make sandwiches weekly for distribution.
Rev. Joyce and Nathaniel now have something at the ready at the office and rectory -- a plastic zip lock bag with some basic items that might be useful to those who are living on the streets. I have made the commitment to use a portion of my discretionary account for assembling these "On the Go" bags. I have been able to provide the following items in a large zip lock bag at a unit price of $4.00:
1 pair socks (new and individually wrapped)
1 toothbrush w/cover and toothpaste
1 pack of tissues
2 granola bars
1 bottle of hand sanitizer
1 ballpoint pen
3 pre-moistened handy-wipes
If you are interested in providing a bag or two, please make a check out to St. Aidan’s and put in the memo line – Milkovich Discretionary Account. Just place it in the plate on any Sunday or leave it in the office. If you wish to sponsor a single item that is not on the list, please feel free to do so. Just fund the amount for the number of units you wish to provide, and let me know where to obtain the item. I will get it into the bag.
Thank you, and may God richly bless you and yours.
Faithfully, Rev. Ed Milkovich
