O Judge of the nations, we remember before you with grateful hearts the men and women of our country who in the day of decision ventured much for the liberties we now enjoy. Grant that we may not rest until all the people of this land share the benefits of true freedom and gladly accept its disciplines. This we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Verse of the Day is Philippians 2:5-8 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!

[04/16/21]   Dear St. Christopher’s Family,
I hope your Easter season is continuing joyfully. I want to share with you what has brought me joy this week:
Last Sunday, typically what we call Low Sunday for the customary drop in attendance after Easter, was actually our highest attendance apart from Easter Sunday since we resumed public services! This tells me that you are anxious to get back, and I am anxious to see you.
Our music is coming back soon! This Sunday, Alyce Green will sing a solo for our anthem. Congratulate her when you see her: she’s starting SMU in the fall to study music education! And we will resume congregational singing starting on Pentecost Sunday.
The school is coming together and taking shape. The renovations are coming along beautifully as many of you saw last weekend at the Open House and as we went over after Sunday’s service.

As we prepare to see each other again, I really do look forward to seeing all of you again face-to-face, and meeting some of you in-person for the first time. That will be a great joy for Connie and me, and long overdue for all of us. In preparation for that, I want to renew the invitation I offered at the start of my ministry here: I’d love to chat with you as individuals about your experience and hopes for St. Christopher’s, so I’m inviting you to invite me to call you or, as you are comfortable having a cup of coffee or something together. Just respond to this message and I’ll reach out to arrange something.

I look forward to seeing you this Sunday, whether in person, or just saying ‘Hi!’ in our streaming options.

Faithfully,

Fr. Chris+

Zenaida (Zenaida of Tarsus) and Philonella (d. circa 100) were traditionally the first Christian physicians after Luke the Evangelist, and the first "unmercenaries" (physicians who would not accept fees from their patients).
Zenaida and Philonella were sisters, born into a well-educated Jewish family and said to be cousins of Paul the Apostle.They devoted themselves to the study of medicine, and when they completed their studies moved to the mountains around Pelion in Thessaly. The physicians who practiced there catered to the wealthy, charging exorbitant amounts for their services, and augmented their incomes with the sale of magical amulets and charms. On locating a cave they opened a clinic where they treated all who came to them regardless of their ability to pay.
Philonella devoted herself to experimental medicine, using methods approaching that of modern scientific methods. Zenaida was particularly interested in pediatrics.

Hermione was born in Caesarea of Palestine early in the first century, a daughter of Saint Philip the Deacon. Inspired by a true understanding of the gospel, she studied the philosophy of medicine in her native city.
She bought a house and founded a medical clinic, devoted to the treatment of the poor and the homeless. She added rooms for these homeless ones and for poor travelers who were ill. Thus was established the first of those hospital-hostels or xenodukia, which would become so much a part of the Orthodox Christian tradition.

Amen.

Happy “Quasimodo” Sunday!

The Sunday after is Easter is called Quasimodo Sunday because of the Latin introit traditionally sung at the beginning of the liturgy: Quasi modo geniti infantes. It's translated as "like newborn infants" and comes from the second chapter of the First Letter of Peter, "Like newborn infants, long for the pure, spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow into salvation."

We thank you, heavenly Father, that you have delivered us from the dominion of sin and death and brought us into the kingdom of your Son; and we pray that, as by his death he has recalled us to life, so by his love he may raise us to eternal joys; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Dear St. Christopher’s Family,

What a joy it was to celebrate my first Easter with you! And to see so many of you was a special blessing. It’s now looking like we are coming out of our long hibernation and are ready to resume being Church again. With that in mind, I’ve asked Becky to start rounding up the choir again to prepare for resuming congregational singing starting on Pentecost Sunday!

BUT WE WILL NEED YOUR HELP! If we are going to resume having the choir as we’ve been used to for all these years, we can’t have everyone in the loft and nobody in the pews below! We will need to build a critical mass of people in the pews. We’ve raised the cap on attendance dramatically, but this means we all need to invite our friends and neighbors who’ve maybe always thought about coming to church with us. As Episcopalians, that’s not always our strong point. But I encourage you to give it a shot anyway. Your neighbor or friend might have been waiting a long time just to hear that invite. If you’re unsure how, enjoy this video:

https://youtu.be/dXSihlfcQUA

Also, don’t forget our Open House tomorrow for our prospective school families. If you’re able, please sign up for one of the volunteer spots we have for parishioners to help with the welcoming and the gardening. It will give you a chance to meet our new teachers and get a peek at what has been going on inside the school the last few weeks (spoiler: it’s impressive!).

I’ve really missed the last two weeks of the Approach, so I’m also glad to say we’ll be back this coming Wednesday at 10:30 with Fr. Perry Mullins of St. Peter’s in McKinney. If you haven’t joined us for one of those, you’ve been missing out.

As we re-open, I’m looking forward to meeting many more of you face-to-face, and eventually without masks. We’re opening as fast as the diocesan protocols will allow, so hopefully that is soon.

I hope you’ve had a great start to the Easter Season, and pray for God’s blessing on all your households.

Faithfully,

Fr. Chris+
