The Twenty-first Sunday after Trinity


"Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand."

Ephesians 6:13

Br. Scott led our beautiful Morning Prayer service this past Sunday. His very interesting sermon focused on the Epistle lesson starting at Ephesians 6:10 with Paul's inspiring words about the Armor of God. He reminded us that just as Navy Seals have necessary equipment, Christian spiritual warriors also have access to special equipment from God. The early church recognized the fight against evil and often broke for prayer many times a day. One of the Navy Seal's most important pieces of equipment are knee pads because they spend a lot of time on their knees. Christians should do the same!


Thank you Br. Scott for the beautiful service and sermon. Please find the complete service at the link below:



Next Sunday, November 5, as we celebrating Holy Communion with Fr. Yossi - remember to set your clock back!

May God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Ghost, bless, preserve, and keep you; the Lord mercifully with his favour look upon you , and fill you with all spiritual benediction and grace; that ye may so live together in this life, that in the world to come ye may have life everlasting. Amen

Sam's brother, Dennis, passed away recently. Sam and Merry attended the funeral services this past week and sent this beautiful picture.


O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered; Accept our prayers on behalf of the soul of thy servant departed, and grant him an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of thy saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
