 The Season
of Advent

Priest/FirstDayofAdvent3.JPG


The season of Advent, the time of preparation for the coming of Christ at Christmas and the start of the liturgical year in the Roman Catholic Church, begins on a different date each year. When does Advent 2016 begin? Advent 2016 begins on the First Sunday in Advent, November 27, 2016. Please join St. John's Episcopal Church on Advent Sundays for our 9am Mass. Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Healing
Service
newpagelogo2.gif

healingservice2.jpg

 

On Sunday, November 27th, The Rev. Canon Jerrick F. Rayside held a healing service. Prayers and anointment for the healing of the body, mind and spirit was offered. The Service of Healing utilizes an ancient rite of the church: laying on of hands and anointing with oil for healing. Prayers and anointing may be for the person present or as an intention for someone else.
"Psalm 107:19-21: Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent forth his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men."

Weekly Inspiration

Verse:
"All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." - Matthew 11:27-28
Thoughts
True rest comes from knowing God. King David reminds us of this in Psalm 23. Jesus makes it clear again. Only Jesus can fully reveal God to us. Only Jesus can take away the burden of seeking to please God without an understanding of grace. Only he can remove the burden of our past sins and enable us to stand holy, blameless, and free from accusation before God Almighty. (cf. Colossians 1:21-22)
Prayer
Father in heaven, thank you for sending Jesus to fulfill the Law and to bless me with your grace. May I never take that grace for granted. Dear Father, empower me to serve you with joy and gladness that come from the burdens of my sinfulness and failure lifted by your grace. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
