The Rev. Ben Robertson preaches a sermon for 6 Epiphany at the Chapel of the Cross.
Back by popular demand, C’YA Sunday School starts again this Sunday, February 3, from 10-10:50 in the youth wing. We will study the readings for each Sunday until Lent begins. During Lent, we will do a series called Episcopal Worship: When do I cross myself again? I have learned the most questions during confirmation classes are about our worship. This Sunday school series will give us the chance to discuss in depth and ask questions about what we do in worship and why we do it.
Are you new to the Episcopal Church? Want to know more about the Episcopal Church? Need a refresher course on when and how to cross yourself during worship? We have just the opportunity for you! Adult confirmation classes begin weekly on Tuesday, March 26, from 6-7:30p in the Parish Hall.
From the Blog
Children are wonderfully made with a special spiritually all their own. They are so much more than miniature grownups, incubating to be adults one day. When we think that way, we detract from the true value of their childhood by focusing on the future adult they will become. It is invaluable to be fully engaged and mindful of the presence of our children by being fully present for them.
We who read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest holy scripture (as the Prayer Book instructs us to do) sometimes lament the illusion that we no longer see and experience the heroes, prophets, miracle workers, great writers and orators, and other characters we experience in the Bible.
“Sheesh. It’s the 2000’s. You’d think they would learn to print all of this on the bulletin so I can stop the juggling act!” That was me the first time I attended an Episcopal church. I dropped the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) and Hymnal no less than 3 times that day. I know many of you may have felt that way or still do, in fact, as we work our way through worship on any given day in our churches.
