Happenings @ St. David's

Our God and worship of God is what it is all about. Joyful worship is at the center of covenant community and, just as those in the Temple saw the light given to us in the Christ child during worship, we too invite the light into our lives, individually and collectively. We come to worship and need to sing, pray, and come to the Table together. In this Black History month, we are reminded that all are needed at the Table where true reconciliation may begin.

We hope you have a blessed week remember those voices this month from the African American community in particular in the church and in the world. God calls all of us to worship and remember the hope given to us in our Savior Jesus Christ.

Faithfully yours,

Fr. Will
