What a morning! Two newly ordained priests simultaneously celebrating the Eucharist for the first time in two different rooms; First Communion for 25 children; Mothers’ Day celebrations; and the ending of our four-week Capital Campaign with announcement that we had exceeded our $25M goal. God is good.
In this sermon concluding the Church of the Incarnation’s Capital Campaign, Bishop Burton reflects on the cost of discipleship.
Wonderful Day of Service today at the JFK Learning Center. Thanks to all the organizers and 350 parishioners who came out to paint, landscape, plant, decorate, clean, cook, repair, and assemble gift packages.
“ [The swallow] is an owl that has been trained by the Graces. It is a bat that loves the morning light. It is the aerial reflection of a dolphin. It is the tender domestication of a trout.
“ Almighty God, who art afflicted in the afflictions of thy people: Regard with thy tender compassion those in anxiety, distress, bereavement or danger; bear their sorrows and their cares; supply all their manifold needs; and help both them and us to put our whole trust and confidence in thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
