Congratulations to Rowan Bolash (Buddy and D.J.’s grandson) who was baptized today! We continue our journey through the Psalms; the lectionary readings may be found here. May you grow daily in a firm trust in the only God who can save and protect us thoroughly from any evil.
I’ve heard a few comments that the audio doesn’t load on your computer. The audio files on this site are in .m4a format. Usually if you have iTunes or Quick Time listening shouldn’t be an issue. Windows Media Player doesn’t play .m4a typically, but you can install the K-Lite Codec Pack which does. You can also use Zamzar to convert the audio file to the PC-friendly .mp3 format that will play on Windows Media Player. I hope this helps you.
With 3 feet of the snow on the ground, Holy Communion was not an option this morning. So here is a short service of Morning Prayer with Sermon and a little bit of music. Many thanks to my wife, Kelly, for her assistance with the readings. I used the Eucharistic readings which can be found here. (Please excuse my flub during the last hymn when I had sudden dry eye and everything went blurry while I was singing.) May you find the prospect of God speaking to you in nature and Scripture so exciting that you are energized on your spiritual journey.
We have a God who loves us faithfully. Here are today’s lectionary readings. Have a listen to find out how much God loves us.
Baptism of our Lord, and baptism of Aubrey Pauline McCorkle – what a wonderful bit of warmth and brightness on a chilly, rainy Sunday! Lectionary readings can be found here. May our glorious, omnipotent Lord open your hearts to his saving purposes.
Another feast day, another sermon! The readings for Epiphany can be found here. May we all wake up to the light of Christ this new year.
The readings referenced for today’s sermon can be found here. Psalm 147:13-21 was the main text. The 1979 Book of Common Prayer version was the quoted.
