From Fr. John: Given that there are only two more Sundays in this month, I’m offering one Adult Formation class next Sunday morning at 9:00 in the St. John Room. It is a class we have done before, but it bears revisiting and I hope it will inform your Bible reflections and studies.
Learning “how sacred events become scripture” helps to remind us of why context is important in engaging the living word of God in the gift of Holy Scripture. Episcopalians take scripture seriously, not literally, and trust that these holy books are truly inspired by God, without being the unfiltered, verbatim “once-and-forever” communication of God. As one of my seminary professors used to say, “The Bible is jammed full of truth and some of it happened.”
The following Sunday, we will meet at the same time and place for an Inquirer’s Gathering.
While you are shopping: We are always collecting donations for Hospitality House and Operation Nightwatch. You can leave small personal toiletries or new men’s sweat socks in the cloth bin by the nave door or check the Hospitality House list of needs in the office. We are also grateful for ready-made emergency meals for our pantry, like Spam and other canned meals, stews or soups. Celeste can give you some advice about any of these if you are curious.
Ash Wednesday: Our Lenten season begins on February 26th. We will have a Mass with the imposition of ashes at 5:30 p.m. in the nave. The settings of the Mass will change and the altar and presider will be dressed in purple vestments at each Mass until the beginning of Holy Week on April 5th.
Next week’s readings:
- Deuteronomy 30:15-20
- Psalm 119:1-8 1
- Corinthians 3:1-9
- Matthew 5:21-37
