Holy Week Reflections from the Rector

The Friday Night Scream It all became real on Friday night. Yes, Good Friday during the Oratorio of the “7 Last Words of Jesus” by Thomas Dubois. The St. Michael’s Choir and instruments led by Organist Matthew Wilkinson were stupendous. But toward the end as the choir led into a crescendo of “It Is Finished”…

What Does the Personnel Committee Do?

I have received that question over and over again thought, therefore, it would be a good idea to explain its purpose. Everything we do in ministry comes from the power of the Holy Spirit and your resources through the tithe. Therefore we want to make sure that we have the right folks in the right places on our staff team. Last year,…

Good Friday walk

By Alex Dickson On Good Friday, Jane and I left early to walk down to White Point Garden. I had on my purple cassock and straw hat; I also carried my shepherd’s staff.

Is it more than a man thing?

By Chappy McKay It is a fact:  If the human male walks past an item more than three times, it ceases to exist. Poof! It’s gone. Laundry on the floor, a bag of garbage, dishes on the counter … if they can manage to ignore it three times, the cloak of invisibility settles in. BUT is it possible this same unique talent…
