Mother's Day, Rogation Sunday & the Fifth Sunday after Easter
"Be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only . . . "
St. James 1:22
Br. Scott and Mike led a beautiful Morning Prayer service this past Sunday.
Br. Scott gave a short, poignant sermon that tied the Epistle lesson (be both a hearer and a doer of the Word), the Gospel lesson (ask and ye shall receive), and the traditional prayers of the Rogation Days (for growth and protection of planted seeds) to the life Earl lived. Mike then led us in speaking about what Earl meant to each of us and all the work he did for St. Peters. Thank you Scott and Mike for the beautiful service and memories.
Please find the complete service, including the sermon and all the shared memories at the following link.
After services Claudia fixed a delicious lunch for all us not able to be with our families on this Mother's Day.
Thank you so much Claudia and Mike for all your work and for the delicious food!
Amazing how many of us were inspired to wear blue this Sunday!!
