Dear EVF Friends,
Last weekend I was invited to present the work of EVF in Northern Virginia. We had a great turnout, and so many expressed interest in forming EVF groups in their own parishes. We have always trusted the leading of the Holy Spirit, and this weekend was proof that God is working. If you are interested in continuing to form an EVF group in NOVA, please let me know by replying to this email so we can begin to organize.

If you’re in Central Texas, please join me at St. David’s in Austin at 1845, Tuesday, 14 March, for our first Spring meeting. We will be checking in, sharing some water, snacks, and prayers with our homeless neighbors, and, as always, praying Compline together.
Casting Call: At this March 14th meeting we will host a film crew to film our group in Action. The Diocese of Texas is making a video about Missional Communities, and we will be in it! This is a way for our small group of veterans to get our message out to a larger number of people.
I’d like each group to think about naming themselves. I was thinking each group could be named for an Episcopal Veteran. For instance, if your parish had a deceased member who was a veteran and loved God and his/her neighbor, they would be a good candidate to honor this way. Let me know what you think.
EVF will partner with the Posse East to host Matt Williams and his Retired Army Chaplain band on April 2nd. It’s a Sunday afternoon, so come out and hear some rocking music about love, war, and spirituality. Matt is an amazing musician and chaplain. I’m so looking forward to this.

I’m working on planning a Tactical Retreat this summer. We had a great time last year. Please email me if you are interested in attending. I’ll be looking at the calendar for a good weekend.
Thank you for all you do for veterans and the Church. I am reminded every day of your faithfulness and love.
