Open Letter from Rev. Clarence, 2/20/23

Posted on ; Filed under News

Dear Members and Friends of St. James,

Attached, as many of you have requested, are my reflections shared during our in-person Eucharist on the Last Sunday of Epiphany 2023.  The main item, to which I bring now your attention, is that on Wednesday of this week, 22 February, we will assemble in our sanctuary to hear the words of Holy Scripture and to sing familiar hymns which call us to a Holy Lent, those 40 days of preparation for the Great Feast of the Resurrection.  For those who desire, there will be the IMPOSITION OF ASHES, a solemn act which reminds us of our common humanity. 

Wednesday, 22 February 2023
7:00 P.M.

I hope that you will join us on this most solemn of Holy Days, and that you will be so moved to invite a friend or neighbor.  Should you not be able to be present in person, you may be present in spirit and follow the liturgy in the Book of Common Prayer, p. 264.

Of your charity, I bid you pray for peace in our world.

May the peace of God that passes all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the love of God and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord; and the blessing of God Almighty, Father, Son and Holy Spirit be with you and those whom you love into this new year.  Amen.

Your fellow Sojourner in The Way,
