Please join us for worship today, Sunday, Sept. 6 at 10.00 am for Holy Eucharist and Baptism. Our readings are Ezekiel 33:7-11 (a call to repentance), Romans 13:8-14 (Paul calls on the Christians in Rome to “lay aside the works of darkness and put on the armor of light”), Matthew 18:15-20 (Jesus teaches about repentance and forgiveness): Here is the order of service. Bishop Mark Edington will be our preacher. His sermon is entitled, “The Problem with Neighbors” with “Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.” (Romans 13:10) as his text. During the notices, Susan Pinnells, a member of the Convocation Task Force on Climate Change will be presenting some ideas about what we can do as a parish and as individuals.
Our second service in Sunday is Sung Evensong at 5.00 pm. Our readings are Revelation 14: 1 – 7, 13, Matthew 5: 13 – 20. I will officiate and preach (briefly!), with a focus on the Season of Creation (see: https://seasonofcreation.org/). Please join us either in person or via Facebook for this service too.
