 INTRODUCTION

Certain values underlie our self-understanding of what it means to be the Church. In a society, increasingly distant from exercising true Biblical values, and in the Church which is being assailed on all sides and within, it becomes necessary for us to define our faith community clearly by declaring in both uncompromising and unambiguous terms  the values and principles upon which we stand (1COR 14:8; 1TIM 4:1; 2TIM 3:1-4:5). Defining who we are is to declare the ground upon which we take our stand as the people of God, both to that society in which we find ourselves and of which we are members, as well as to the Anglican church with which we are formally identified.

Although values are not seen, they do act as the blueprint that governs all our outreach and practice.  Certain priorities arise from our values and determine the specific focus for all our ministries and for our understanding of what it means to be the Church.

This All Age Service was inclusive meaning children stayed for the entire service and were encouraged to participate in all the fun activities.  Worship songs were geared to  participation with mouth/foot/hand actions. Rubbing our tummies, raising our hands and stomping our feet got us all ready for more.

Passover2

 

On Thursday March 29, we celebrated a Passover Meal as a church body. It was a huge success. We ate together, sang together and celebrated a traditional Passover meal. The traditional food was substituted with items that are easily obtained in this area of the world, but the importance of them was not lessened as a result. I was particularly touched to be able to serve communion to my table-mates and enjoy their company as we remembered Jesus last night with his disciples.

Good Friday Services at St. Peters Okotoks are an important part of the Easter events. Traditionally, the church has held an evening service that included elements of the Passion as a  reminder of the final hours of Christ’s life on earth.
This year a new service was introduced to our Parish which was a different but appropriate type of worship. This well attended service experienced a new way of reflectively meditating and praying through this period of our Christian history. These notes are a brief commentary on my thoughts of the Taize’ Service.

An inclusive ‘All Age Service’ was held today at St. Peter’s Church, this 3rd Sunday in Lent.   Our congregation is made up of all ages from those approaching 100 years and those just born.  Lent and Passover were the focus for the service.  Several exercises followed to highlight the history of the Last Supper and our personal preparation for Confession and the Eucharist.

A blessed day was had by all when Bishop Greg spent Sunday at St. Peter’s Church.  Bishop Greg shared a solid message about living our faith and discussed how different the world would be if we were constantly in prayer throughout our regular day. He also took part in the Children’s Teaching.

My dear, dear Family in Christ Jesus,

Adapted from Romans 1:1-7 

Timothy, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God— the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.

Jane provided these prayers at our Spring conference. 2015

Ask God to bring deep conviction of sin, spiritual brokenness, a holy fear of God and genuine repentance among His people.  

2 Corinthians 7:10 Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.
