Sunday, October 10 was the nineteenth Sunday after trinity. Fr. Glen based his sermon on the epistle for the day, Ephesians 4:17, in which St. Paul instructs the new Christians in the church be founded at Ephesus on leading a Christian life and “henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind…” but rather “put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness.” The instructions Paul gives in the passage are relevant for us today as they were in Paul’s time and are not easy, but Fr. Glen reminds us that we have the Holy Spirit as our guide, as the collect for the day prays “grant that thy Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our hearts.”
Fr. Glen announced that next Sunday, Oct. 17, will be our annual Fall workday and coming up on Nov. 14 we will have our next Vestry meeting.
Everyone is welcome at St. Francis Anglican (Traditional Episcopal) Church where Fr. Glen Hartley conducts services Sundays at 10:30 a.m. and Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m., assisted by lay leader, Tom Berthold, acolytes, Chandler and Lincoln Connell, and organist, Kip Smith.
