Message from the Rector
G. Corwin Stoppel
We have now moved into the nearly six month long liturgical season of Whitsuntide, or as it is more recently called, “Pentecost”. In some denominations it is also called Ordinary Time. Whitsunday comes fifty days after Easter, and coincides with the Jewish holy day of Pentecost (Penta, being Latin for 50). And, the season extends from the 15th of May until the 20th of November. The liturgical colour is green, and many years ago this led one of our young Sunday school members to call it the “Green Bean Season” because like the vegetables grown in her family garden, it was long and green. Regardless of what we call it, throughout this season our daily and Sunday lectionary puts an emphasis on what it means to be a practical, practicing Christian in partnership with Jesus. Please do come and join us for worship on Sundays at 8 and 10 AM, and remember that our sanctuary is open around the clock for prayer and meditation.
