A Message from Fr. Bryan

Dear Friends in Christ,

I hope you've been enjoying this beautiful fall weather, as I have. The school year is off to a surprisingly good start, and we can be thankful for that. Before we know it, Advent will be upon us. Your patience and perseverance in this difficult and most unusual season is greatly appreciated. It is hard to know the mind of God, but He is always working among us to accomplish His sovereign will so let's pay attention and move forward in faith, hope, and love. That is all He asks of us. I only have a few things to mention this morning, so this should be short.

First, we are planning a church field-trip to Maize Valley on Sunday afternoon, October 11th. Stay tuned for more information on exact times, as Suzanne will be sending an email in the next week or so. Please note that tickets are $11 per person and that the church will pay for all of our children. You can read more about Maize Valley and the activities offered at this link.

Second, our bible study on 1 Thessalonians will begin on Tuesday evening, October 6th at 6:30 p.m. If weather permits, we may meet on my back porch. If the weather turns cold or wet, then we will plan to meet at the church. Regardless, if you plan to participate, please purchase this simple bible study guide from Crossway.

Finally, we will finish our long sermon series on prayer this coming Sunday, as we consider the Rite of Reconciliation of Penitents, and this prayer, in particular:

O most loving Father, by your mercy you put away the sins of those who truly repent, and remember their sins no more. Restore and renew in your servant whatever has been corrupted by the fraud and malice of the devil, or by his own selfish will and weakness. Preserve and protect him within the fellowship of the Church; hear his prayers and relieve his pain; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

A special thanks to Dale Boston for preaching on a deep and moving prayer from our Rite of Christian Burial this past Sunday. If you missed it, the video is accessible below. I look forward to seeing you in a few days.

Grace & Peace,

    "Death and the Christian" Life by Dale Boston

    A message from the series "On Prayer." Dale Boston picks up our series on prayer by discussing a truly Christian response to death, and how we can even work towards dying a good death ourselves at St. John's Anglican Church in North Canton, Ohio.
