Embrace Tradition

daily reflections for Advent & ChristmasDuring the days of Advent, join us as we focus on the quiet voice, that urges us to “be still and know”.

True Anglican Tradition dictates that we focus on the season leading up to Christmas. During Advent our devotions, readings and liturgy have us looking forward, with anticipation, at the only gift Mankind has ever received that promises, peace, justice, forgiveness and eternal life.

This tradition, focused on scripture and liturgy from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, provides welcome respite from the chaos of the commercialism that began at pagen Halloween. As we focus on traditional worship, we are drawn into the poetic literary style of worship with the beautiful, cherished hymnody that remains timeless.

You are invited to join us. Put aside the stress of modern day commercialism, the dread of overspending, worry of disappointing, or being disappointed, We are not a church that will be wrapped in tinsel, piping music from a rock band, with large overhead screens.

We are a community, where the quiet journey of Advent will be fulfilled in Christmas joy. Our destination is always the ancient liturgies of centuries old continuous worship, unbroken by trends and styles.

Between the services, we have been discussing “Daily Reflections for Advent & Christmas”. This week at 9:15 on Sunday morning we will discuss the readings from December 14 to December 20.

Advent Blessings,

Fr. Harley+

Pet Blessing – October 5th at Noon

On a Sunday on or near the feast of St. Francis we hold a service to bless the animals. This year we will hold this service on Sunday October 5th – 2014. St. Francis of Assisi feast day is officially observed on October 4th. He is identified as a humble servant of Christ who willingly took a vow of poverty. He is also known for his great love and concern for all of God’s creation. It is fitting that on his feast day we would give God thanks for the blessings of His creation. This is a time when we can pray for the care and safety of God’s creatures, who are a gift from God. We recognize the blessings that our animals bring to us and pray for God’s care over His creatures. We also remember our charge to care for the creation that the Lord has given us stewardship over. This is a time to not only celebrate our own pets but of the Lord’s magnificent handiwork in all of creation.

Bring your pets and animal companions to be blessed and prayed over individually. All pets are welcome. Weather permitting we will gather outside on the West side of the church. If we have inclement weather we will hold our pet blessing inside the church in the entry way (Narthex). All are welcome. Refreshments will be served after the service for all of God’s creatures.St Francis preaching to Spike
