A Message from Fr. Bryan

Dear Friends in Christ,

We are just a few weeks away from Pentecost Sunday and then Trinity Sunday on the following week. However, there is another important Holy Day, which takes place this Thursday, called Ascension day. This is the day when we celebrate Christ's Ascension to the right hand of God the Father, where He now reigns over all things as Lord. The following collect is used for Ascension day services:

Almighty God, whose only-begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven: May our hearts and minds also there ascend, and with him continually dwell; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

If you would like to learn more about the Ascension, this reflection on the collect is a good place to begin.

If you were with us this past Sunday, then you know that we will baptize James William Terry this coming Sunday during our service of Holy Eucharist. James is the son of Mike and Autumn Terry, Malone graduates from several years ago. Mike and Autumn attend (Mike is on Staff at) Parkside Church in Green, and I baptized their oldest son at St. John's several years ago. Please be sure to welcome Mike, Autumn, James, older brother Eil, and some of the extended family when you see them in church on Sunday. The forecast calls for beautiful weather!

That is all for this week. Enjoy the Sunshine!

Grace and Peace,

    Approaching the Psalms by Dr. David Beer

    A message from the series "Sermons from Lectionary Texts." This Sunday, Dr. David Beer preached on how it is that we can tend to overlook the Psalms we say or sing in our worship every day, and he offered some suggestions on how we might approach the Psalms that will integrate them more fully into our understanding as we say them.
