Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it to you. St. John 16:23
Fr. Scott's sermon reviewed the history of Rogation Sunday, reminding us the word Rogation means to "petition earnestly". Historically this Sunday was used to pray for an abundant harvest which led to the popular English tradition of walking & blessing the Parish fields, commonly known as 'Beating the Bounds'. As St. James reminds us in the Epistle lesson, our faith and prayers should also impact our lives, making us 'doers' of our faith. In the Gospel lesson, Jesus says we will have tribulations in our lives, but through prayer God will give us peace. During this three day Rogation season, include St. Peters in your earnest petitions, praying that we will fulfill God's mission for us in the area.
Fr. Scott's complete sermon can be found at the following link at the 21:55 mark.
Thank you Fr. Scott for the lovely sermon tying all our lessons together!

Fr. Scott updated us on Audree's recovery from her recent hip surgery. She is recovering well but is getting frustrated that she can't play like she wants too. She has a doctor's appointment this week - we continue to pray for healing and a quick, complete recovery!
