Sunday, June 5 was the Sunday after Ascension Day, which was last Thursday. Bishop Hartley based his sermon on the Epistle for the day, I St. Peter 4:7, “The end of all things is at hand” and St. Peter exhorts us to “be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.” This means that Christ has completed his earthly mission and it is the responsibility of Christians to accept him in our lives through the comforter or Holy Spirit.
A number of St. Francis members did well in the Ava Art Guild Annual Spring Art Show, which closed June 4. In the Advanced Acrylic Painting Rita Fancher won third for “Millon Sutton Hoo.” In Intermediate Photography Carrie Compton won first for “Ice On Limbs” and second for “Geese Bathing.” In the youth section Lincoln Connell won first for “Romans Recycled,” his reproduction of a Roman’s soldier’s armor. Third place winners in the youth division were Natalie Berthold for “Bright Lights” and Laura Berthold for “Jewell of India.”
Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. we have evening prayer followed by Bible study and we have started a new series “Whatever Happened To…” tracing both Biblical references and oral traditions and legends concerning Biblical figures.
