We’ve all gotten an important call from time to time. Before cell phones, even before telephones, a spoken call or message was much less frequent and, perhaps, had more impact. Still, we remember those calls: that which changed our lives. We hear about the archetypal call from Jesus to the first disciples--an unlikely pair of brothers to put it mildly. They were certainly lacking in any experience for the life that lay ahead of them, and not exactly temperamentally suited either. Who would have though it? Jesus simply called them, saying “Follow me." Their decision to follow him is inexplicable outside of the power of God to change lives. Each of us has a call from God to follow him. Following that call will take us all sorts of interesting places.
SUNDAY MORNING ROLL-OUT!
St. Mary's will serve a hot breakfast from 8:30-9:45 EVERY SUNDAY. Rev. Bill will take the floor from 9:10 to 9:50 during breakfast and offer a lesson and reflection on the inexhaustible subject of being “Unabashedly Episcopalian.”
Fellowship, breaking bread, and bringing the congregation from both the first and second service together. Come whenever breakfast is being served, at whatever time suits your schedule.
It will be informal, casual, participatory, and fun! You don’t have to follow a syllabus be prepared. You don’t have to be “on time” either. Come when you can. Just eat good food and spend some fun time with your fellow parishioners!
They spent their time learning from the apostles, and they were like family to each other. They also broke bread and prayed together. Acts 2:42
