Fr. Jordan & Mother Emily thank you for coming by and praying over Keith....I TRULY appreciate you showing love to my HUSBAND. Keith said he felt yall prayer and he truly GRATEFUL that yall came by to visit him. He in rehabilitation
I never really understood the significance of Lent or Holy Week, but am becoming more aware since becoming submerged in the Anglican tradition three years ago. I'm understanding more the meaning of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil...and how those are SO VERY important in preparing our hearts for the celebration of Easter Sunday. Today is Maundy Thursday. This is a song that Fr. Nelson Koscheski and my husband, Ryan Flanigan, wrote last year, as part of their Liturgical Folk Lent Series. This video is especially treasured to me, as Ryan is playing my grandmother, Hope Evangeline Marsh's 1938 arch top Gibson guitar. I know she smiles down, every time we play it! #liturgicalfolk #maundythursday #easteriscomingbutnotyet
Last night's service was awesome.
Wonderful baptism this morning...

St. Augustine's — a diverse, liturgical church with deep roots in the community of Oak Cliff and in the ancient faith of the church.

Sunday Rite I - 8AM Rite II - 10:15AM Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday Rite II Morning Prayer - 9AM Oak Cliff is always changing. Waves of demographic shifts over the decades have created a mashup of cultures, flavors, and life that makes it the most unique neighborhood in Dallas. So too with our church: in 2014 three churches with deep roots in this community decided that they could serve the neighborhood better together than separately, so they formed St. Augustine's — a diverse, liturgical church with deep roots in the community of Oak Cliff and in the ancient faith of the church.

Mission: St. Augustine's is committed to worshipping the Triune God in the Great Tradition of the Church, loving our neighbors & our neighborhood, and leaving a legacy of leadership and discipleship in Oak Cliff and beyond. Come join us.

Lo, the Good Shepherd for the sheep is offered;
the slave hath sinned, and the Son hath suffered.
For our atonement, while we nothing heeded,
God interceded.

For me, kind Jesus, was thy incarnation,
thy mortal sorrow, and thy life's oblation;
thy death of anguish and thy bitter passion,
for my salvation.

Therefore, kind Jesus, since I cannot pay thee,
I do adore thee, and will ever pray thee,
think on thy pity and thy love unswerving,
not my deserving.

Ah, holy Jesus, how hast thou offended,
that we to judge thee have in hate pretended?
By foes derided, by thine own rejected,
O most afflicted!

Who was the guilty? Who brought this upon thee?
Alas, my treason, Jesus, hath undone thee!
'Twas I, Lord Jesus, I it was denied thee;
I crucified thee.

Thursday Thought: Lean In - https://mailchi.mp/bf17153e44c3/thursday-thought-lean-in

While humans are adept at handling change, we do not like it one bit. Not at all. We fight and resist and claw ourselves away from change, usually only giving in when we've tried every single other way we can imagine.

So one of the practices we're being encouraged to grow in during this season is exactly this "going with the flow," making ourselves flexible to change, accepting and even surrendering to the insanity of our situations.

Lord of the Flood, wash us with your Spirit that we may be your ark of life, your peace in the sea of violence. Water is life; water cleans; water kills. Frightened, we are tempted to make a permanent home on the ark. But you force us to seek dry ground. We can do so only because you have taught us to cling to our baptisms, where we are drowned and reborn by the water and fire of your Spirit. So reborn, make us unafraid. Amen.

Wednesday Wisdom: Celebrate Anyway - https://mailchi.mp/staugustinesoakcliff/wednesday-wisdom

There's a wideness in God's mercy,
like the wideness of the sea.
There's a kindness in God's justice,
which is more than liberty.
There is no place where earth's sorrows
are more felt than up in heaven.
There is no place where earth's failings
have such kindly judgment given.

Swaffham's Catholic Church

Come, thou Fount of every blessing
tune my heart to sing thy grace
streams of mercy, never ceasing
call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet
sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount I'm fixed upon it
mount of God's redeeming love

Here I raise my Ebenezer
hither by thy help I've come
and I hope, by thy good pleasure
safely to arrive at home
Jesus sought me when a stranger
wandering from the fold of God
he, to rescue me from danger
bought me with his precious blood

Habits & Confirmation

Mtr. Emily has some thoughts about the Holy Spirit transforming our lives, and about what the sacrament of Confirmation means.

What wondrous love is this, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss
to bear the dreadful curse for my soul!

And when from death I'm free, I'll sing on, I'll sing on,
and when from death I'm free, I'll sing on;
and when from death I'm free, I'll sing and joyful be,
and through eternity I'll sing on, I'll sing on,
and through eternity I'll sing on!

St Aloysius in Somers Town, London

Lent V: Morning Prayer I, March 29

Ezekiel 37:1-14
Psalm 130
John 11:1-45

This prayer is for Saturdays; how weird is it to pray about celebrating the Paschal mystery when we're not doing what we always do? The powerful thing about praying this is that we have no idea how God might answer this prayer!

We give you thanks, O God, for revealing your Son Jesus Christ to us by the light of his resurrection: Grant that as we sing your glory at the close of this day, our joy may abound in the morning as we celebrate the Paschal mystery; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Saturday Special: Quarantine - https://mailchi.mp/111cdf65dc93/saturday-special-quarantine-holy-week

I learned this week that "quarantine" means "40 days." Lent started out innocently enough, right? We went to the Mardi Gras parade, I pulled out my Lent devotional, we had our foreheads smeared on Ash Wednesday.

Then, COVID-19. Whether you're religious or not, you're practicing Lent - a "quarantine" - removing distractions from your life; living pared down; it's uncomfortable in varied ways but it's transforming too.

From Elnora H Jones

The church's one foundation
is Jesus Christ, her Lord;
she is his new creation
by water and the Word:
from heav'n he came and sought her
to be his holy bride;
with his own blood he bought her,
and for her life he died.

detail of a stained glass window at St Rose's in Springfield, KY

Abide with me: fast falls the eventide;
the darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

I fear no foe with thee at hand to bless,
ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death's sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if thou abide with me.

Thursday Thought: the Exodus shift, goodness, oppression, sin, and freedom

A little reflection on our Daily Office Reading today, Exodus 1:6-22.

Ever been tired of change? It's pretty relentless, huh? Especially these weeks!! The changes come *hard* and *fast*. Feeling weary? There's a prayer for you!

Be present, O merciful God, and protect us through the hours of this night, so that we who are wearied by the changes and chances of this life may rest in your eternal changelessness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

**except, DON'T BRING A FRIEND, AND DON'T GO ANYWHERE. SERIOUSLY.
Yoga from Afar, Stress Relief - https://mailchi.mp/77f25a31c1c5/yoga-from-afar-stress-relief

Y'all. See how this is talking about nighttime, and also about like, NIGHTTIME IN YOUR SOUL?!?! We ask God's protection during the literal night, as we sleep (or try to...) and God's protection through this *whole time* where both days and nights seem pretty *dark*, right?

Be our light in the darkness, O Lord, and in your great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love of your only Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen. (BCP 133)

Lent IV: Morning Prayer I, March 22

Follow along in the BCP! Starting on p. 38. Scripture lessons: 1 Sam. 16:1-13, Ps. 23, John 9:1-41.

Sometimes we have no words. The Book of Common Prayer is here for when we don't have words. Here are some words to use to pray to God, if you need some:

Visit this place, O Lord, and drive far from it all snares of the enemy; let your holy angels dwell with us to preserve us in peace; and let your blessing be upon us always; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (BCP 133)

Trinity Church Princeton

Mtr. Emily's dear friend, sorority sister, and Theologian in Residence at Trinity Princeton, Mtr. Kara Slade gives a super fab explanation of what on earth this Book of Common Prayer thing is about. Listen to her, take a breather from Mtr. Em 😉

Have you ever wondered how to find the readings for a given day in the Prayer Book? In this short video, Kara demystifies the Sunday and Daily Office lectionaries.

Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all for your love's sake. Amen. (BCP 134)

Family Resources

Our bodies are such holy conduits of love. This (COVID 19) is what it looks like (one of many ways) when the Enemy tries to corrupt and turn the goodness of God into evil. So ironically, for this season (TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON), depriving each other of our bodies is the holy & loving & LIFE GIVING thing to do.

Guide us waking, O Lord, and guard us sleeping; that awake
we may watch with Christ, and asleep we may rest in peace.

Lord, you now have set your servant free
to go in peace as you have promised;

For these eyes of mine have seen the Savior,
whom you have prepared for all the world to see:

A Light to enlighten the nations,
and the glory of your people Israel.

Guide us waking, O Lord, and guard us sleeping; that awake
we may watch with Christ, and asleep we may rest in peace.

**warning, there's an s-bomb at 2:35. It is to describe the current state of our world, so, I sort of stand by it...

Devotions for Individuals & Families - "Early Evening"

Pray with your family! (BCP 139)

Sometimes, Lent chooses for you.

Another way to love your neighbors. ❤️
