St. John's celebrates today's Dr. Martin Luther King Day!
Let us not forget...
"I still have a dream, a dream deeply rooted in the American dream - one day this nation will rise up and live up to its creed, "We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal." I have a dream..." Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1963)

The Gospel - John 1:29-42
John saw Jesus coming toward him and declared, "Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! This is he of whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who ranks ahead of me because he was before me.' I myself did not know him; but I came baptizing with water for this reason, that he might be revealed to Israel." And John testified, "I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him. I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.' And I myself have seen and have testified that this is the Son of God."
The next day John again was standing with two of his disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, "Look, here is the Lamb of God!" The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, "What are you looking for?" They said to him, "Rabbi" (which translated means Teacher), "where are you staying?" He said to them, "Come and see." They came and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day. It was about four o'clock in the afternoon. One of the two who heard John speak and followed him was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first found his brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is translated Anointed). He brought Simon to Jesus, who looked at him and said, "You are Simon son of John. You are to be called Cephas" (which is translated Peter).

The Altar Guild is the ministry of those who care for a liturgical space. It is their responsibility to prepare a place for worship. It requires careful attention to all of the furnishings and decorations in the space where worshipers gather. The Altar Guild is responsible for the care of vessels, linens, hangings, decorations etc. They work under the priest's direction. At St. John's we work in teams of 3's and usually serve for a week once per month. The Altar Guild could use your help. Men and teenagers are welcome to join.

Prayer For The
 United States and all in Civil Authority
newpagelogo2.gif

obamafamily.jpg

 
As President Barack Obama's last full day in the White House nears on Jan. 19, 2017, we would like to thank him and wish him and our First Lady, Michelle Obama and their family all the best in their new endeavors. We also thank them for the last 8 years served with class, grace and dignity.
With that said the next president will be sworn into office at noon on Jan. 20, 2017 (Inauguration Day). We therefore, share this prayer for the incoming President of the United States and all in Civil Authority:
"O Lord our Governor, whose glory is in all the world: We commend this nation to thy merciful care, that, being guided by thy Providence, we may dwell secure in thy peace. Grant to the President of the United States, the Governor of this State (or Commonwealth), and to all in authority, wisdom and strength to know and to do thy will. Fill them with the love of truth and righteousness, and make them ever mindful of their calling to serve this people in thy fear; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen."

Every woman who belongs to the Episcopal Church is a member of the ECW/Women's Ministry. The purpose of this organization is to assist the women of the Episcopal Church to carry on Christ's work in the world and to take their place in the life, governance and worship of the church. We participate for the spriritual growth, fellowship, service, education, leadership training, and mission focus. Here at St. John's, we meet the second Sunday of each month and usually sponsor the Women's Day Program and Luncheon. We usually sponsor one or two other fund raisers during the year. The monies collected are used for the OUTREACH programs. We also oversee the collection of food for the Episcopal Community Services, school supplies for the needy children, adopt-a-family at Christmas, send knitted sweaters to children worldwide, hats and scarves to Seaman's Church Institute, and coordinate efforts for United Thank Offering. From time to time we take on other projects. No special invitation is necessary.

Weekly Inspiration
newpagelogo2.gif

 Verse
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name -Psalm 100:4
Thoughts
Clearly this exhortation comes from the days of God's physical Temple in Jerusalem. Let's also remember that for us, God's New Covenant people, God's Temple is the church (1 Cor. 3:16) and our own bodies (1 Cor. 6:19). Let's value and celebrate with joy our church family. Let's also glorify God with our bodies! Let's give thanks and praise God's name in public, in private, and in community.
Prayer
Father, I enter into the most holy place and approach you because of the sacrifice of Jesus. I am thrilled to know you listen. I am overjoyed to know you welcome me. I am glad to be with you and to let you know how much I appreciate all that you have done for me. Thank you for meeting me in this place of prayer until I can come home to you and meet you face to face. In Jesus' name. Amen.
