The Joy of Easter!
From Ted, our rector:
This year, Easter is nearly as early as it can be (March 22nd is the very earliest possible date for Easter, which last occurred in 1881 and will not come round again until 2285!). This means we at St. John’s can rejoice together all of April and much of May in the season of Easter (Easter is a season as well as a Sunday). This runs with the new life coming into our parish as we continue to grow together as parish and priest, and as my family of my lovely wife Sage and our son Theo prepare to welcome another member into our family this fall, a baby boy due in early September!
Come join us this spring to refresh and renew your spirit, to let the Risen Lord speak a fresh word of hope to you, and to discover anew the wonder and delight of sharing Christian community. Our vestry will be leading us in the coming months into the fullness of our three-team all parish organization: Community Life, Spiritual Life, and Resource Management. Look for opportunities to learn how you can contribute to our shared life in the Spirit at St. John’s. And seek out those in your own life who need to hear the good news of the Risen Lord. We have every cause to hope and no need to fear, for the God of Life is doing a new thing in our midst, and so we rise and gather together with joy to discover it!
The parishioners of St. John’s Episcopal Church invite you to join us on a spiritual journey. Please join us for Sunday worship at 10:30 AM each Sunday (includes child care). Visitors are warmly welcomed to coffee and conversation following the service.
