1987 Oct 11 – 28th Sun Ord Time (Bulletin Letters)

Dear Friends;

SOYBEAN FARMERS ATTENTION!!!: Tim Enis from the National Farmers Organization (NFO) will be in Logan at the St. Anne’s Rectory this Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. to present a plan backed by the NFO to raise the price of this years soybean crop. Today’s NFO is a highly-sophisticated marketing agency. I met Tim while I was in Corning for my deaconate assignment. He’s very knowledgeable on the commodities market yet able to break the concepts down into their simplest form. I know because Tim helped me through the workings of the Commodities market. I urge you to come listen to what Tim has to say. It could hardly hurt to listen to his message. I assure you it will be an hour well spent.

Cycle A 28th Sun Ord Time – 87

Phil 4, 12 – 14, 19 – 20



Paul’s words to his friends in Philippi from a prison cell. As I studied this week’s text with Paul’s words from prison, my thoughts were filled with friends doing long term jail time for their acts of conscience against the insane arms race.  Solitary acts of disarmament that pierce the nuclear “veil” (Isa25/7) that keeps our world in darkness. St. Paul is writing to the Philippians to thank them for sending him provisions while he was imprisoned. I know how important an encouraging word can mean for the imprisoned. I ask you to hold in prayer the following friends who are doing long term jail time for their acts of disarmament. Drop them a note. I’m sure they will appreciate hearing from you. Tell them Fr. Frank sent you.
