I am prayerful that you, along with Christians throughout the world, found a deeper connection with Christ in prayer and meditation during Holy Week. A solemn period for us to journey with Jesus to the Cross. I will cherish the beautiful and prayerful Healing Evensong the St. Anne’s community held on March 19 inviting those present to a new entrance in life, as we all reflected on Jesus’ entrance into the city of Jerusalem.
We are reminded that we are a resurrection people, we followers of Jesus, and just as Jesus was not intimidated by the cross or the ruthless treatment he received, we are invited to keep our eyes, heart, and mind focused on the love that God has for us and we have for him. Not the worldly things that we are constantly bombarded with. Let us hold in prayer all those impacted by the hurt that goes on all around us and in our world.
May Easter remind us that each day we have the opportunity to rise again and continue to grow into the person God created us to be!
In keeping with our regathering in community, please be reminded that we will be coming together at 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 23 at Buccaneer Park in Oceanside. We will have a Joyful Celebration of Eastertide and Springtime with Evening Prayer and a wealth of Uplifting Praise Music provided by Pete, Kaitlyn and all gathered and hopefully you might invite other musically inclined sisters and brothers from the diocese, friends and neighbors.
