After 40 days of Lenten fasting and preparing, we enter an extended 50 days of Easter celebration and mission. Immediately following Easter, new members of the ancient church (professing their faith, receiving Baptism and celebrating Holy Communion) continued their discipleship in faith through guided reflection on the mysteries of the faith.

I told someone again this week how thankful I am to be part of this church. I really love Sunday mornings and all the ways we can experience the Lord's presence. Here are three: there is scripture, there is the sacrament, and there is the Spirit.It's the three streams of our Anglican tradition.

“What time should we be ready to go?” “The service starts at 5:30, so 5:00am should be fine.” The Cathedral of St Anthony of Padua in Dunkwa-on-Offin has been beginning each day with morning Eucharist for years. The service began as a way to serve the men and women of the parish who had to quickly be on their way to work. The combination of walking commuters and challenging roads led to the service beginning at this early hour.

June 28, 2013 Friday Epistle from Sara Buffington, Worship Leader - God is Looking for Worshipers. And this means you. When the Israelites were enslaved in Egypt, Moses and Aaron approached Pharaoh with a message. "This is what the Lord says: Let my people go, so that they may worship me." (Ex 8:1) It was a message worth repeating--it is recorded six times between chapters 8 and 10. God was, and is, calling His people to worship. So what does it mean, exactly, to worship? Gerrit Gustafson, author of The Adventure of Worship, defines worship this way: Worship is the act and attitude of wholeheartedly giving yourself to God--spirit, soul, mind, and body.
