St. James’ Church, a parish rooted in its witness to Christ, is a welcoming Episcopal community–open in spirit, deep in faith, rich in worship, and active in service.
Something to think about,
I am continually reminded as I read and after a time re-read a book written by one of my favorite authors, Henri J. M. Nouwen, “Can you Drink the Cup”? In this book Henri has written the following, it a good passage to meditate on as we journey through Lent.
“Jesus took it all in, not as a hero adored and then vilified, but as one who had come to fulfill a mission and who kept his focus on that mission [no matter what] the responses were. Jesus knew deep within himself that he had to drink the cup to accomplish the work his Abba—his dear Father—had given him”.
In Lent, like Jesus, we need to focus our attention on our lives, on how we are living them so as to be able to drink from the Cup Jesus puts before us as we journey through life.
Have a blessed Lent and a joy filled Easter.
There is nothing stronger than that of a Volunteer. Thank you Gloria
