This Week’s From the Rector

Good morning and thank you for joining us for the First Sunday after Pentecost, more widely known as Trinity Sunday. This is a time when we look at the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The readings are powerful, as the Epistle contains what most would agree is the most well known blessing in Scripture. Then the Gospel gives us Jesus issuing the Great Commission. The Old Testament reading is the story of creation, no less! This is an especially good Sunday to come to church or tune in via LiveStream. 

This Sunday our usual organists are gone, but we are happy to welcome  Linda Russell as our temporary organist. She will play for the hymns only, as the service music is too complicated to learn for this short a time. The rest of the Mass will be a said service, except for some well known chanting. We are grateful to God for providing us a supply organist. 

Next Sunday, we return to the liturgical color Green, which is symbolic of “Regular Time,’ or ‘Kingdom Tide.” This will, with a few exceptions, take us through the summer and bring us to Advent. Wow! This year is hurtling by! 

Continue to pray for our country, the law enforcement agents and first responders on the front lines of this anarchy. Also, pray for a double dose of Holy Spirit power! 

May God bless you this week…

John †
