THIS SUNDAY: LECTIONARY Acts 11:19-30 Ps 33:1-8,18-22 1 Jn 4:7-21 Jn 15:9-17 SERMON Fr. Ross Kimball As a lead-up to the Feast of Pentecost, All Saints Anglican Cathedral will be hosting an Equipped to Heal conference, May 17-19, 2018. In partnership with the Isaiah 40 Foundation, led by The Rev. Canon Alex Cameron, the Equipped to Heal teaching team will bring a weekend of training and healing prayer for the churches in New England. I invite you either to attend the event, or to pray for those who will. Recently, I had the privilege of serving as a prayer-ministry apprentice with Canon Alex at a retreat hosted by Imago Dei Anglican Church (an ADNE sister-parish). Alex modeled a gentle manner, confidence in God's power, and genuine care for the individuals for whom we prayed. I'm eager for the further training that Alex and the rest of the Equipped to Heal team will bring in this conference. The required registration fee covers costs for Friday lunch and dinner, as well as for conference materials. Click here to go to the registration page for the event. The conference welcomes all who minister healing and pastoral care or [...]
THIS SUNDAY: LECTIONARY Acts 8:26-40 Ps 66:1-12 1 Jn 3: (11-17)18-24 Jn 14:15-21 SERMON For Jesus, on the Way Fr. Nathan Baxter Travelling in Eastertide Alleluia; Easter Greetings to all. One great benefit of the liturgical year is the length of the Easter season. Seven weeks provide ample time to celebrate but also to practice two habits of the curious: wondering and pondering. As catechists we ponder and wonder with children throughout the year, but Easter gives us ever more to consider. We usually find ourselves declaring at least once, “The feast of Jesus rising from the dead is so great we celebrate it not just for one day, but for fifty days!” Eastertide allows us all time and space to wonder at Christ’s holy death and rising, and to ponder the grace and mercy won. This year I find myself pondering another aspect of Easter: Jesus’ post resurrection appearances. What would it be like to suddenly find Jesus walking on the road with you, or sitting on the beach, or coming through the door to join those gathered in the upper room? “But after I am raised up, I will go [...]
FROM THE JOHNSONS SERVING IN UGANDA Dear All Saints Community, We are back home in Kisoro and trying to get a regular routine down with having two little ones in the house. We would like to take a break from ministry for a little while but that is not how the culture works here. I will be preaching for St. Mark's Day on April 25th and then will be preparing for ordination on May 6th. My parents and my aunt are coming for a visit in 2 weeks to meet the baby and to be here for my ordination. We also have Bishop Bill Murdoch joining us for the ordination service from the Anglican Diocese in New England back home. Ryan is still working on the rabbit project for the Batwa Community but is having some trouble with the breeding process. We will have some others back from Australia to help with the Batwa Community later this summer. Thank you for all of your prayers and financial donations so far in our journey. Please continue to pray for us in this new phase in our life and ministry.” Blessings, The Johnson Family - Ryan, Jillian, Matthew, and Aveline Prayer requests: Please [...]
THIS SUNDAY: LECTIONARY Acts 4:(23-31)32-37 Ps 23 1 Jn 3:1-10 Jn 10:11-16 SERMON The Good Shepherd Mthr. Susie Skillen Our new website is up and running! We're making improvements regularly and getting accustomed to the many helpful tools available both on the site and behind the scenes. The blog feature is a major improvement to the site, making it easier to keep updates available and organized. One of the behind-the-scenes tools we're especially grateful for is newsletter integration. This makes it possible to keep both the website and the newsletters up-to-date and informationally consistent, and with a streamlined workflow. Those who've subscribed to the weekly email in the past will be receiving it now from "MailPoet" (instead of "Vertical Response"). Anyone who'd like can now easily subscribe through the website (see the form at the bottom of any page on the website). We've also connected the website with our ASAC Facebook page. We're hoping that the website, newsletter, and Facebook, alongside the printed information in weekly bulletins, will better serve the information-flow for our community. If you have constructive feedback on the site, please email the office.
