St. John's Schedule

A Message from Fr. Bryan

Dear Friends in Christ,

This coming Sunday we celebrate All Saints, which means the sanctuary will be decked out with white banners on the walls and on the altar. If you would like to learn a little bit about All Saints Day and why we celebrate it, you might be interested in this brief article. I will be out of town, so I invite you to welcome Fr. Chris Harner, who will serve at the altar and preach in my absence.

Chris was ordained a priest in 2006 and has been serving within the ACNA since 2019. His wife is Zandra; their blended family has 6 children (4 of them adults) and 1 grandchild. Chris+ is currently serving as the Assistant Priest at Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Hudson, OH. Please be sure to welcome Fr. Chris and his family.

I'll be taking a brief two-night writing retreat at Camp Buckey, which is in Beach City near Bolivar, so pray that I can be both productive and get a little rest in the process. In the meantime, you may enjoy this short article suggesting that the American political system is not as broken as it might seem, at least not at the local level. I find myself reading the Front Porch Republic quite a bit these days, and I am increasingly convinced of the importance of building institutions like St. John's.

Finally, Suzanne prepared a meal for Bp. Grant and Wendy LeMarquand last week, and Chad delivered it to Ambridge, PA on Monday. If any of you would like to do the same, please contact Chad Sanner to make arrangements. He can be reached at 330-687-0424.

Have a blessed All Saints Sunday.

Grace & Peace,
