Easter Sunday has come and gone, but the message is the same. Jesus came into this world to save us from our sins. To share the message of salvation. The story is one to be shared from generation to generation. We invite you to join us on Sundays at 10 am. Jesus is the Pascal Lamb and the light of the world.

Grace is a massive word.
Nearly too big to understand.
Because Grace makes us new again.
And Grace is something that is simply given.
It doesn’t cost a cent.
Grace takes the useless pieces that is left when we are shattered, even before we even think to ask, and fits it together to form the most beautiful picture of wholeness.
Grace takes the heart that was dragged through mud to the Heavenly Laundry and hang it back on the clothespins of life, washed and ironed and ready for wear again.
It makes despondent people hope again, changes bitterness to forgiveness, and shape the lost ones into eternity people.
Through Grace a bleak future is turned into a bright future with loads of possibilities.
Godly Grace sets no specifications, asks no questions, have no expectations, sets no rules and never points a finger.
Grace says:
"I love you. Just as you are."
You don’t even have to be someone that has to do first, work, look or do deeds for others.
You have full access to Grace, forgiveness, acceptance and love while you are being just who you are.
Because He came to sew torn and worn-out lives into a heavenly tapestry of of unity.
God’s Grace is too vast to understand.
And ironically, that is what our beliefs are about.
Grace enfolds love, life, forgiveness, second-chances, do-overs, caring, being there for others, and too much more than we can think of.
And thankfully we do not have to understand the vastness of God’s Grace to accept it.
We only need to welcome, with gratitude, what is given to us so unconditionally..
From my ❤ to yours,
Luzette

From April 25, 2019:

"It was a Sunday and we had gotten up early—not my usual 3:45 a.m. wakeup for the Today show but still pretty early. We were driving back to Manhattan and hoped to make it in time for the morning worship service because back home, at St. James Episcopal Church, Nick is a crucial part of the worship team and he takes his responsibilities very seriously."

This Much We Can Agree On...

The Church can be neither red nor blue. Nor are bishops political commentators. And fixing America’s immigration system is a complicated question, which I hope we can get back to, someday, in a bipartisan way.
Still, it is good to state some simple moral truths that ought to be self-evident to all, whatever one’s politics. Increasing or prolonging the suffering of children for the sake of political leverage is wrong. When local residents of both parties want to give children in detention and distress diapers, soap, and toothpaste, the correct response is ‘yes, thanks.’ Contra Stephen Miller, brutality is not a policy. Should the above not seem clear, I would worry over the morally corrosive effect on us.
Often Scripture exhorts us to care for the sojourner; we are also to pray for all, including the enemy (per Jesus) and Caesar (per Paul). Practical local efforts like those of Gateway of Grace are to be commended. We should also pray for the President, the parties, the Congress, those who work at the border, and the refugees, that we all might be preserved by God’s unmerited grace, and that we might live in this harsh time according to the ‘angels of our better nature.’

Peace, GRS

Liturgical Easter begins after sunset on Holy Saturday with the Great Vigil of Easter. Lent has but a few hours left, and for many of us, the anticipation of Easter has begun.

04/20/2019

Episcopal Church Memes

An empty tabernacle awaits the Easter Vigil. In The Episcopal Church the reserved sacrament is removed from the tabernacle or ambry where it is normally kept during the stripping of the altar at the close of the Maundy Thursday liturgy. There is no consecration of new elements from then until the Vigil on Saturday evening.

From Anthem 2, Good Friday Liturgy, BCP, p.281.

[04/18/19]   Why Did Jesus Fold the Napkin?

Why did Jesus fold the linen burial cloth after His resurrection?

The Gospel of John (20:7) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over the face of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like the grave clothes. The Bible takes an entire verse to tell us that the napkin was neatly folded, and was placed separate from the grave clothes. Early Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, 'They have taken the Lord's body out of the tomb, and I don't know where they have put him!' Peter and the other disciple ran to the tomb to see.. The other disciple outran Peter and got there first. He stooped and looked in and saw the linen cloth lying there, but he didn't go in.

Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus' head was folded up and lying to the side.

Was that important? Absolutely!

Is it really significant? Yes!

In order to understand the significance of the folded napkin, you have to understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day. The folded napkin had to do with the Master and Servant, and every Jewish boy knew this tradition.

When the servant set the dinner table for the master, he made sure that it was exactly the way the master wanted it...

The table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just out of sight, until the master had finished eating, and the servant would not dare touch that table, until the master was finished. Now, if the master were done eating, he would rise from the table, wipe his fingers, his mouth, and clean his beard, and would wad up that napkin and toss it onto the table.

The servant would then know to clear the table. For in those days, the wadded napkin meant, 'I'm done.'

But if the master got up from the table, and folded his napkin, and laid it beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table, because........... The folded napkin meant, 'I'm coming back!'

He is Coming Back!

Good News Initiative with Carrie Boren Headington

Join me this Lent in UNVEILING ourselves to God and receiving mercy, forgiveness and liberating unconditional LOVE. Day 1 Devotional. For More click the link below.

“But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” - 2 Corinthians 3:16-18

THE UNVEILED FACE
We wear masks consciously or unconsciously on a daily basis. From pretty pictures on social media to looking busier at work to hiding alone on our darkest days, we walk around never disclosing who we are fully.

We look in the mirror in the morning and think, If anyone ever knew that about me, they would reject me. We have a gnawing sense of being found out. Even if there is nothing horrific to hide, our instinct is that what we are is not enough.

Some masks are slapped on us by the world. Some are self-imposed. Some of us have been hiding behind a pretense of who we think the world wants us to be or who we want to be ourselves, so much so that we are totally out of touch with our true selves. We have layered so many masks on top of our true selves that we are blinded, lost, veiled, and numb. We hide because we long to be employed, loved, accepted, and embraced.

When Adam and Eve turned away from God, ushering in sin and death, their first instinct was to hide among the trees (Gen. 3). God’s first question to them was, “Where are you?” From the very beginning, we see God searching after anyone who wants to hide from him. He longs to bring restoration, grace, mercy, and reconciliation to every single person on the planet and indeed the whole of creation itself.

Lent is an invitation to gaze upon the unveiled face of Jesus Christ crucified. With arms outstretched, stripped naked, nailed, and lashed, the Lamb of God took upon himself all of our sin, brokenness, and death that we desperately try to hide. With thorns piercing into his skull, Jesus is crucified for the sake of the world. On the cross, we see the TRUE UNVEILED face who took upon himself everything that makes us want to hide.

Because of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, we have been set free from any mask that tries to suffocate us. Because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we can now come to the throne of grace with unveiled faces ourselves with all confidence (Heb. 4:16). Followers of Jesus should be people who confess our sins, showing who we really are so that God may be glorified in us. We are sinners with unveiled faces who have been set free through Jesus Christ.

Prayer: Lord, thank you that we can remove our masks and show our true selves to you—the good, the bad, the beautiful, and the wretched. You died on the cross so that we could be forgiven and set free. Help us to reach out to others and create safe spaces where they too can remove their masks and receive the good news that they are forgiven, accepted, unconditionally loved and set free. Amen.
