Holy Eucharist June 3

Please worship with us during a service of Holy Eucharist on June 3 at our usual 9:30 start time. The Rev. Judith Toffey will lead the service that day. This is the service of prayers, scripture readings, a homily, and communion.

On Sundays when there is no specific worship service mentioned in this blog, the parishioners of St. John's offer Morning Prayer. It is a peaceful service of prayers, praise, and Scripture in contemporary language.

All are welcome at all services, Sundays at 9:30.

Happy Mother's Day

"To all who have held a little hand, comforted a fear, inspired courage and nurtured a young soul - to all who have loved a child."

Thank you, JoAnn, for writing this in our Order of Service and reminding us that we all have a role in nurturing and loving children.

Interview with God

Two weeks ago, JoAnn shared one of her her best finds among the many results on Googling "God" - The Interview with God. gets you to a link for the "Presentation" and the text of the interview. While the idea of interviewing God and then posting "the answers" on the Web may sound presumptuous, JoAnn found that the interview idea was a good way to prayerfully ask a question, then listen for what God might say to your heart.
