Rejoice!

Rejoice in the Lord always: again I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:4-7

Hello my Brothers and Sisters,

At our Vestry meeting this week, we closed with a beautiful Eucharist which included the above reading, also from last Sunday’s service. Reverend Lyn commented that it reminds her of St Paul’s, and I could not agree more. As we enter another transition, I continue to rejoice in the gentle and kind way you all are with one other: offering up our prayers to God and looking forward with peaceful hearts. I will continue to rejoice in the Lord and St Paul’s.

As we approach the coming of our Savior, I say Rejoice! Rejoice in knowing God has a plan for St Paul’s. Rejoice in your gentle and kind way you bring Christ into your lives and out into the world. Rejoice in the fellowship and love we share. Rejoice!

Wishing you God's Blessing and a Wonderful Christmas,

Rhoda and John, Your Wardens
