Vigil For West Africa — In response to the Ebola crisis in West Africa, St. Anne’s Episcopal Church of Reston, along with other faith communities, is hosting a Candlelight Vigil for West Africa on Sunday, Nov. 2 at 6:00 p.m. on Lake Anne Plaza. The vigil will offer a time to pray, to learn and to act. Among the speakers will be Rev. Dr. Anne Cooper, a St. Anne’s parishioner and priest at the Trinity Cathedral in Monrovia, Liberia. Parishioners have raised more than $12,000 to help Liberians in the last few months.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place.
