Let Your Light Shine

Jesus says, “Let your light shine so that others may see your good works and give glory to God in heaven.” Matthew 5:15 Dear People of St. David’s, I pray that you and yours are safe and well and happy on these beautiful spring days. Spring is one of those seasons...

Being Found by God

“While they were talking and discussing, Jesus came near and walked with them.” Luke 24:15 Dear People of St. David’s, I pray that you and yours are safe and well and want to offer the gentle reminder that though Easter Day is past, we are still in the season of...

Healing Body, Mind, and Soul in Lent

Last Wednesday I sat in the chapel before the weekly Healing Service at 7:30am. I was looking over the service bulletin and marveling at the beauty of the language. You all know that we occasionally use Eucharistic Prayers from Enriching our Worship, a series of texts authorized by The Episcopal Church’s General Convention in 1998. This makes them accessible, but for most of you, invisible! One such treasure is the A Public Service of Healing. It’s public because it isn’t solely between two people, as we used to practice in the corners of the chapel following the reception of Holy Communion. This is an entire service devoted to healing…

We are a church on a mission to know God in Jesus Christ and make Christ known to others.
