Calvary Episcopal Church wishes you a happy, peaceful, and prosperous new year!

This Sunday at all services, please welcome guest speaker Elizabeth Brown
Ms. Brown is a member of Christ Church Cathedral where she currently serves as Junior Warden. She has been coordinator of the Cathedral's Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) program at the Cathedral since it began 12 years ago. She retired last year as Executive Director of Housing Opportunities Made Equal, a local nonprofit addressing housing discrimination. She is past president of Affordable Housing Advocates, a Cincinnati area coalition, and received the Homeless Coalition's 2015 "buddy gray lifetime achievement award" for her advocacy in fighting homelessness and poverty in Greater Cincinnati.

Immediately following this week's 10:30 am service, please join us for an information and question & answer time about the IHN ministry in the Burton Room. Our next IHN hosting evening is February 14 at Christ Church Cathedral.

The Choral Anthem on January 3, 2016, 10:30 AM:
Words: Christina Rossetti
Music: Harold Darke

In the bleak mid-winter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter, long ago.
Our God, Heaven cannot hold him, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when he comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.
Enough for him, whom cherubim, worship night and day,
A breastful of milk, and a mangerful of hay;
Enough for him, whom angels fall before,
The ox and ass and camel which adore.
What can I give him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a wise man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give him: give my heart.

O God, who wonderfully created, and yet more wonderfully restored, the dignity of human nature: Grant that we may share the divine life of him who humbled himself to share our humanity, your Son Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

See you at Church!
