Just wanted to remind parents and teachers: send your first day of school photos or short (30 sec) video to [email protected] for our Blessing of the Backpacks this Sunday.
I am looking for a roommate to rent a bedroom in my house. Rent is $600 a month and includes all utilities and internet. The room is a good size but there is the option of also renting an office for an additional $100 a month for someone who needs extra space or works from home. The home is 1,800 sq. feet, 4 bed, 2 bath single family in quiet Round Hill, VA. Current roommates are three Christian females ages 23, 30 and 37. The bathroom would be shared. There is a laundry room and the kitchen is fully stocked with cooking equipment since we like to cook but there is room for you to bring your own equipment as well. There is parking available in the driveway or on the street. Six-month lease with month-to-month after that. Available immediately. The room is unfurnished but I can provide a bed. Please e-mail me and I can provide additional pictures and information. Contact: [email protected]

[11/01/20]   THE HOLY EUCHARIST NOVEMBER 1, 2020 10:00 AM

We in the Diocese of Virginia join with Episcopalians across the nation and around the work of a Novena -- nine days of prayer from October 27 through November 4.

This Season of Prayer: For an Election has been organized by Forward Movement and The Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations.

A novena is an ancient tradition of nine days of devotional prayers, often with a specific intention. In this time in our national life, we pray for discernment in voting and for the well-being of our nation.

As we move toward the election of leaders for the United States, may we all join in a season of prayer, committing to offer to God our fears and frustrations, our hopes and dreams.

Many of you have asked, "what about Church School this year?" We are excited to share a new resource for families!

We expect to have Storymaker kits ready to distribute from the church parking lot on Friday, October 9, from 5 to 6 p.m.

Storymakers is a self-guided church school curriculum that we'll be using this year. It's a wonderful interactive program that invites children to respond to the stories of scripture through art, journaling, and drama.

Every family will receive one Storymakers ‘zine for each child in Kindergarten through 5th grade, plus a leader guide for parents.

We'll begin the year by exploring the story of Creation. To find out more, check out Storymakers’ website.

If you'd like to have a kit delivered instead, email [email protected] or call the church office at 703-777-1124, and we’ll be sure to get you one.

On the Feast of Saint Michael and All Angels, We Need These Messengers of Hope

Today is the Feast of Saint Michael and All Angels, or as it is much better known in some parts of the Anglican Communion, Michaelmas.

“In times of unusual danger, when the malice of the devil seems triumphant, St Michael will come to our aid.”

growchristians.org When angels appear to people in scripture the first thing they say is, “Do not be afraid!” And that’s what I need to hear today, on the Feast of Saint Michael and All Angels.

The Episcopal Diocese of Virginia

Pray today for our clergy, in Leesburg, in the Diocese of Virginia, and throughout the world. "I am grateful for our leaders in the Church – all our leaders, lay and ordained. Today I am especially thinking of our ordained leaders – pastors, preachers, priests. Men and women called by God and the Church, raised up in local congregations, trained and coached in the larger church, deployed into hundreds of unique settings in Virginia. They serve in cities, suburbs, the country. "

Bishop Brooke-Davidson's Meditation for the 16th Week of Pentecost

Thanksgiving has come early this year.

Walking in the light of the first cool, crisp mornings of the fall, I find myself thankful – not just Gratitude-Journal-thankful for hot coffee, or work that I love, or even for health (though grateful I am) – but grateful for the front-line workers and first responders who are tending to the spiritual needs and feelings of anxiety or disappointment or fear or rage that flare up in unexpected hot spots in the uncontained fires of the multivalent mess that we can only call “2020.”

I am grateful for our leaders in the Church – all our leaders, lay and ordained. Today I am especially thinking of our ordained leaders – pastors, preachers, priests. Men and women called by God and the Church, raised up in local congregations, trained and coached in the larger church, deployed into hundreds of unique settings in Virginia. They serve in cities, suburbs, the country. They and their families have given themselves to Christ and his bride, the Church. They have vowed to serve as shepherds, prayer leaders, prophets, and teachers, and serve they do. They are on call 24/7 for the emergencies of whole communities, and even when things are quiet, they routinely work far more hours than their agreements provide. They are present in crisis and in celebration; they work in the hospital and the study and the chancel.

And now this. Now, the scramble from the beauty and dignity of Holy Week and Easter to the sudden need to convey all of that on Zoom or Facebook. Now, the need to reinvent pastoral care by remote. Now, the weekly uncertainty of regathering precautions and the weight of worry about balancing the deep desire for tangible sacramental life with the profound worry about the health – even the lives – of their flocks. Now, the plunge of the nation into superheated discourse on race and justice, and supercharged emotions over politics. Now, the crazy mix of the cohesion of loving congregations, the opportunity to experiment with new modalities, the need to plan for an unforeseeable future with unpredictable challenges and resources, and the stress of responding in love to the most stressed and anxious among us. Every wedding, every burial and memorial, every deferred confirmation, weighs upon them. This I know, because they will not complain, especially to their flock, but they will call to share their grief and sorrow on behalf of their people. Of course, clergy are not the only bearers of the burdens of this difficult season, but their burden is heavy.

To the clergy reading this: We bishops see you. We pray for you. We are here to listen to you and support you. If it is in our power to help, then we will do it.

And to the laity of the Church, the flock of Christ: We see and pray for you, too. We know that you share the stresses of educational and economic upheaval and a million other worries. And we ask your help in this: help us to uphold and sustain your parish clergy who now enter another stretch of demanding spiritual leadership. That’s not to say that problems or disagreements, if there are any, should be swept under the rug, but rather that the truth must be spoken in love, and the hearts of all should be guarded and protected. Let there be grace – the grace of time and space, the grace of appreciation and honor, the grace of companionship and laughter. Pastoring is one of those occupations with high rates of depression and burnout and worse, especially in times of societal trauma. The antidote is grace, and appreciation, and love. The antidote is remembering that we are not defined by the boundaries of doctrine or politics, but by our orientation toward the cross of Christ. The antidote is humming to ourselves: We have decided to follow Jesus; no turning back. . . The cross before us; the world behind us; no turning back.

Thanksgiving has come early this year. Your three bishops are grateful to your congregational leaders, and we tell them so, but it means much more when they hear it from you. We pray that they are going deaf from hearing it from you. May your love, your patience, and the grace of your support in these challenging times sustain them as they sustain you through the months to come.

And may God bless us all, every one.

Bishop Jennifer Brooke-Davidson

Honoring the memory of this day.

In the days following the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the nation discovered its resilience and celebrated the things that bind us together. As we face uncertain times today, we look back 19 years to remember the unspeakable, but also remember how our nation came together to mourn loss and honor bravery. Bishop Jane Holmes Dixon offered the following blessing at the September 14, 2001 National Day of Prayer and Remembrance, and the words hold true today:

Go forth now, into the world in peace;
Be of good courage;
Hold fast to that which is good,
Render to no one evil for evil;
Strengthen the fainthearted; support the weak;
Help the afflicted; honor everyone;
Love and serve the Lord.

[09/08/20]   Just wanted to remind parents and teachers: send your first day of school photos or short (30 sec) video to [email protected] for our Blessing of the Backpacks this Sunday.

Sunday, September 6: Join us for a 10:00 a.m. Watch Party here on Facebook!

The 179 congregations of the Diocese of Virginia will come together as one faith community for a diocesan-wide service led by your bishops.

This service in English and Spanish will be available here on the St. James' page. A PDF of the service bulletin in English and Spanish is available here: http://bit.ly/serviceBulletin
