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”…

Learning as We Go: New Annual Meeting Plans

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,…

TENNEY, Margaret

The life of longtime St. Michaelite Margaret Tenney

Some weeks ago, we lost a true saint of St. Michael’s Church. Margaret Tenney was in our choir for many years and is now singing in the heavenly choir! Margaret’s son Charles wrote a wonderful reflection on his mother’s life.  Whether you knew Margaret or not, read her son’s remembrance while pondering, what might be…

New Heart and Home Partnership

In October of 2016, Bishop Lawrence called me to ask if St. Michael’s Church would consider adopting the existing church plant in North Charleston (Church of the Resurrection).  It was an exciting request!  Since that time, an organic partnership between St. Michael’s Church and Church of the Resurrection has developed, including joint meetings both with…
