For all the Saints

March 26, 2020 – Thursday Evening

Distributing to the necessity of saints.1

David said, Is there yet any that is left … of the house of Saul, that I may shew him kindness for Jonathan’s sake?2

Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.3 Whosoever shall give to drink one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.4

To do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sactifices God is well pleased.5 God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.6

1Rom 12:13; 22Sa 9:1; 3Mat 25:34-36,40; 4Mat 10:42; 5Heb 13:16; 6Heb 6:10; (From Bagster’s Daily Light – K.J.V.)

Remembering to cast our nets on the other side of the boat

March 25, 2020 – Wednesday Evening

Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing; nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.1

All power is give unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: … and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.2

The kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea.3

Though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not gospel! I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.4

Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.5 My word … shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please.6 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.7

Socially Distant but Spiritually Connected

Still offering the sacrament!

Our drive-through Eucharist was a success. We had 22 visitors who were offered sacramental bread and wine. We will repeat the process. On Sunday morning between 10:00 a.m. and Noon you can drive up and receive the reserved sacrament in a health-conscious manner, along with a printed sermon and bulletin. Keep praying and reading the Bible at home, and come and visit us for the sacrament!

Drive through Eucharist

In order to comply with the lastest guidelines for avoiding the spread of corona virus we will observe a drive through communion.This service will be offered any time from 10:00am to Noon tomorrow March 22, 2020. Pull into our parking lot, remain in your car and communion will be extended to you. Look for the white pavilion tent  in the parking lot. We will also be handing out prayers, a copy of the sermon, and information for the upcoming week. May all be blessed.

A place of prayer in times of uncertainty

cropped-advent-altar-2017.jpgWe Are Open For Business.

While many churches in the Seattle area are encouraging people to stay home and have even canceled Sunday services because of the corona virus,  St. Barnabas has remained open.

We are following the latest guidelines and have added measures to keep people well. As always, if individuals are not feeling well, they are encouraged to stay home. For those who are healthy and not at risk, worship of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit is a priority that overcomes fear. We are meant to gather as a community and share the Eucharist.

We are easy to find at 2340 N. 155th Street in Shoreline. We are close to the freeway, across from Twin Ponds Park.

Our early Sunday service at is 8:00 am, a “said” service only.

Our adult Christian education (during Lent we are discussing and chanting Psalms) from 9:15 to 10:00.

The second service, with music, begins at 10:30 am. We enjoy pre-service hymns from 10:20 am until 10:30am as a transition into worship.

We use the 1928 Prayer Book most weeks. It has some old fashioned language, but we will help you.

On the first Sunday of each month we use the 2019 ACNA Book of Common Prayer.

In some parts of the world, Christians are gathering under threat of violence and murder. God knows it is good for us to worship him. That is, after all, what we are training ourselves to do in eternity.

Neither Sound Transit construction, an interior remodel, or virus will keep us apart.

You are welcome to join us.

In distressing times

Thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name.1

This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.2

Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken … but thou shalt be called Heph-zibah, … for the Lord delighteth in thee. And as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.3 He hath sent me … to comfort all that mourn; to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.4

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.5

I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in right-eousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness and in mercies.6

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?7

1Isa 54:5; 2Eph 5:32; 3Isa 62:4,5; 4Isa 61:1-3,10; 5Hos 2:19; 6Rom 8:35;

Orange Cones for Lent

When you approach St. Barnabas, you may find a collection of orange cones and equipment. This is not some obscure Lenten practice. The equipment belongs to Sound Transit, which is doing work in and next to the street to support construction of the light rail extension north from Northgate. The tracks will run east of the freeway, but there are tie-ins to utilities and equipment for monitoring noise and vibration that are needed in front of St. Barnabas. Sound Transit has been good about helping people visiting the church to get through their barriers and work crews, so do not be deterred by the cones and activity. Have a blessed Lent!

One Service Only! March 1, 2020

Image result for open during construction

During Sound transit construction this weekend, we are still open. On Sunday March 1, 2020 we will have a single service at 8:00 a.m.

You will need to wave the attention of a flagger to gain access to the church driveway. Construction will likely be directly on our property, but we are guaranteed access to the lot on Sunday morning.

We will have a service of music, the Word and Eucharist on this first Sunday in Lent. Coffee hour fellowship will follow directly after the 8:00 a.m. service.

Be safe and please be kind to flaggers, construction crews and equipment operators. They have been very helpful to us in this monumental endeavor.
