You’re Invited to Very Special Services Tomorrow at St. Paul’s

September 28, 2013

“This is none other than the house of God,
and this is the gate of heaven.”
(Genesis 28:17)

At our 8:30 and 10:00 Services, we’ll be celebrating the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels. We’ll remember that ours is a faith which believes in the supernatural, and open ourselves to experience the awesome Presence of God with us.

We’re calling tomorrow Back to Church Sunday, and are aiming to make our Services especially welcoming to visitors. It will be an ideal day to invite a family member, friend, or neighbour to come to church with you. It’s also an ideal day to remember that this invitation to come to church is also addressed to you, if you feel like it’s been too long since you last shared worship with your brothers and sisters at St. Paul’s.

The picture at the top of this posting is on the cover of tomorrow’s Order of Service. It’s the sculpture “Reconciliation,” which stands outside the Cathedral Church of St. Michael in Coventry, commonly called Coventry Cathedral, whose building was reduced to ruins by the bombing in World War II. This sculpture’s message of peace and healing is a large part of the theme of tomorrow’s Services. The second image is of the Cathedral’s Chapel of Gethsemane.

The image immediately above is of a teddy bear with the words “Jesus Loves You” on its heart. The bear is at the foot of the bed of one of the children who was injured in the bombing of All Saints’ Anglican Church last Sunday. In our Services, we’ll remember particularly all who are suffering in Pakistan, as the General Secretary of the Anglican Communion has asked Anglicans to do throughout the world tomorrow. And we’ll dedicate ourselves with our brothers and sisters in the Church in Pakistan to our sacred calling to spread God’s supernatural life in the world by shining forth the light of love.

Embedded below is “Praise the One Who Breaks the Darkness,” which will be our Processional Hymn at tomorrow’s 10:00 Service.
