Grace and peace. I returned from vacation this morning. I feel rejuvenated and am excited to get back into the ministries of St. Patrick’s. The picture to the right is me at the Old Course. If you remember, I told a story about this golf course last month in a sermon. A big thank you to Karen, Kate, and Adele for keeping the office going while I was away (it actually runs better) and to the Rev. Carol Flett who filled in for me on Sunday.
Last Sunday, I worshipped at St. John’s Scottish Episcopal Church in Edinburgh (see left photo). The architecture was very different, but the ministry initiatives were similar to those we do at St. Patrick’s.
This Sunday, we have our regular Sunday service at 10am and at 1pm the memorial service for the Rev. Don Bitsberger. Don asked that the central theme of his service be the resurrection, so it seems appropriate to celebrate it on Sunday. Please keep the Bitsbergers in your prayers.
