St. John's Schedule

A Message from Fr. Bryan

Dear Friends in Christ,

We have finally entered the warm, summer months, and it has been nice to slow down a bit and spend more time outside. For the first time in quite a while, I don't have much to report. We are settling into a new routine with our Sunday eucharistic liturgy, and although it continues to be a little awkward without music, it is a blessing to gather for worship all the same. With the pandemic an ongoing concern and the likelihood of a slow return to normal, this is a season of waiting in many ways. It is really important that we strive to wait with faith, hope, and love in these days, since our witness to each other and to the world matters greatly right now and will matter increasingly as our culture becomes even more unchurched.

I am trying to learn patience, since so much of my professional life is on hold or in flux, and I know that many of you are experiencing the same things. I recently read an article encouraging Christians to have patience and look for God's grace in this strange time of pandemic, and you may find it helpful, as I did. It was written when most churches were still shut down, but its basic insights still apply. You can access it at the following link: A Time for Theologians.

I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Grace & Peace,
