Grace: It's Our Way of Life

As Episcopal Christians we
Worship at home daily and together weekly;
Study the Scriptures, our tradition, and what it means to be a disciple today;
Serve our families, our parish, and our world in the name of Christ.

Everything we do is done with an ethic of Welcome
because we are only here by Grace.

The Very Rev Daniel P Richards proclaims the bible messages for today in speaking about Wisdom (Sophia) that it is beyond knowledge. Fully knowing Wisdom is in relationship with God, people, and time. Wisdom is answering the question, “Will you part with your whole self in order to be totally in Christ?  Can we "be" beyond the physical and move to the spiritual in all things? Wisdom in Christ can cost us everything...

Parish Announcements follow the Sermon.

Readings from the Revised Common Lectionary for today: 

The Collect

Almighty God, you have given your only Son to be for us a sacrifice for sin, and also an example of godly life: Give us grace to receive thankfully the fruits of his redeeming work, and to follow daily in the blessed steps of his most holy life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
