The Fifth Sunday After Trinity


"And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net."

Luke 5:5

Mike and Scott led a lovely Morning Prayer service this Sunday ( Fr. Scott and Maryl are recovering from Covid). Scott did share Fr. Scott's sermon for this Sunday. The sermon focused on the Gospel Lesson from Luke 5 describing the beginning of Jesus's ministry and the start of Peter's following of Jesus. Please find the complete sermon and service on our YouTube channel:

In addition to Fr. Scott and Maryl, Diane, her husband Jim, and Carole are also recovering from Covid. Please keep them all in your prayers as they recover.

This past Sunday, Sue led the first of three book readings from "Your Healing Is Within You" by the Anglican Bishop Jim Glennon. Thank you Sue for introducing us to this very interesting book! We will continue to meet before Holy Communion services between 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, July 24 and Sunday, July 31. This is not a "new age" book, but rather presents an Anglican view and teaching about praying for divine healing. The book itself is out of print, but used copies are available on the internet (Amazon, etc). Sue has several copies, but depending on how many people come, we may need a few more - so please let Sue know if you are planning to attend so she can work out the number of books needed. Please contact Sue if you have any questions or need more information. Thank you Sue for leading this study!
