Dear friends in Christ,

Please notice two items on the list of dates above that we've not mentioned during the announcements at church. First, we are planning a "Parents Night Out" at St. John's on Thursday, December 19th from 6 pm - 9 pm. Parents can drop off their children, do some shopping, have dinner, or whatever they please. We will have plenty of supervision, fun activities, and snacks for the kids. Second, we are having a traditional Anglican Lessons and Carols service at 6:30 pm on Sunday, December 15th. Lessons and Carols is one of the great gems in the Anglican tradition, so do plan to attend, and be sure to invite friends.

Ordinary time wraps up this weekend, as it always does, with "Christ the King Sunday," so Fr. Sean will bring our rich series on 1 Corinthians to a conclusion. On the following Sunday, we begin a new liturgical year with the season of Advent, so you should begin to prepare yourselves for the coming of Christ. If you are new to a liturgical church and want to know more about the Christian seasons, then we heartily recommend this video.

Additionally, if you are looking for an Advent devotional for use on your own or in a group, you can't go wrong with the Advent Project from Biola University. It is very well done with artwork, readings, and meditations. There are, of course, other sources just a quick google search away if you want something different.

As always, we look forward to seeing you all gathered together for worship and fellowship on Sunday.

Grace & Peace,
Fr. Bryan & Fr. Sean

One By the Blood: Walking With a Rwandan Brother

One By the Blood: Walking With a Rwandan Brother
How Rwanda Was Written into My Story Rwanda has been an ever-present part of my Christian journey since I journeyed into the Anglican tradition. When my wife Sonya and I landed at our first Anglican parish in the summer of 2010, we learned that it had a connection to Rwanda. In the early 2000's, Anglicanism in the United States went …
