Nov. 24: Wrestling With Evil in a World Gone Mad
The Lessons for November 24 are Jeremiah 23:1-6 and Luke 23:33-43. The Sermon theme is: Wrestling with Evil in a World Gone Mad. After the service, everyone is encouraged to bring something towards a pot-luck lunch (finger food), enjoy some fellowship and a Q + A with the Rector on the theme presented: How do we make sense of Evil? Join the discussion and invite a friend!
Held at 10 a.m. on the last Sunday of each month, Morning Praise, with its simpler format and its use of prayers taken from our old Book of Common Prayer, is an edifying and uplifting service. Its intention is to be a simple and easy service, especially for those who have little or no church experience. We have recognized from time to time when visitors come to SJYM that they find our Eucharistic service almost intimidating. Our Anglican liturgy — especially the service of Holy Communion — was written by mature believers and was intended for mature believers. Well, we all know, given the secularization of society today, that there are many who come to church seeking to grow in their faith, but find our expression of faith far too complex and even overwhelming.
Post-Service Parish Pot Luck Lunch
A time of food and fellowship, it’s a good opportunity to get to know your church family better. Please bring finger food for a simple cold lunch, small sandwiches, starters, hummus, veggies, etc.
Sunday, October 27: During the lunch Damien Benedict, whom we supported on a mission trip to Malawi, will share about his experience. Children are welcome.
