St. John’s thoughtsPosted: January 18, 2011
A couple of thoughts on St. John the Divine, Morgan Hill, from this past Sunday.
- The Gospel passage for Epiphany 2, Year A was from John 1, wherein two of the disciples of John the Baptist left John and followed Jesus. Fr. Phil spoke about the serendipity of finding one's true spiritual home. Yes, indeed.
- The church annual meeting was between the 9:00 and 10:30 service, and the 10:30 service didn't start until 11:00. In order that things not run too late, Fr. Phil omitted the Nicene Creed, the Prayers of the People, and the confession. Personally, I can do with having the confession every week, but it showed a correct set of priorities: leave the Eucharist liturgy complete and intact.
And, oh yes, if you're wondering: I did not attend the annual meeting. I'll have plenty of opportunity to become involved in the business of the church. For now the view from my pew is more than sufficient.
