The Circumcision of Christ


"And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb."

St. Luke 2:21

____________________________




Fr. Scott's last sermon at St. Peters tied together the Circumcision of Our Lord and the Ministration of Baptism as celebrated today with the baptism of Ambrose. He reminded us that Ambrose has now begun a new spiritual life as one of our Christian brothers. Also, he asked us to reflect on the gifts we received from Christ in our own baptisms.




Please find his complete sermon at the following link:





Ambrose's baptism!





Ming was in town for the Holidays and joined us this past Sunday. It's so wonderful to catch up with him and to hear him play!









Also, Dan and Laurel's son & family joined us from Norfolk this Sunday.








___________________________


After services, we enjoyed refreshments as we met all of Ambrose's relatives and said good bye to Fr. Scott, Maryl, Amber, & Audrey. May God continue to bless them in their new life at Holy Cross in Knoxville.
