THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER

What does the Book of Common Prayer say about who carries out the mission of the church ?  The Church carries out its mission through the ministry of all its members. page 855


Curate's Corner

It is in prayer that we open the door of our minds to the love of God. The primary purpose of prayer is not to tell God what we want, but to find out what God wants from us. It is a means of receiving the will of God into our lives. It is also a way for us to know the love of God. It is interesting that prayer releases the love of God into our lives and into those around us.
 
When we come to worship every Sunday or on Wednesday at Holy Nativity we are a community at prayer. We bring all our joys, celebrations, hurts and mistakes to our place of worship. We represent the Kingdom of God when we gather together as community. We are at prayer. Our positions of what we think about various subjects or the mistakes we as humans make are trivial when compared to our relationship with God through Jesus Christ. It is not about the priest, it is not about you, it is about God.
 
Almighty God, to whom our needs are known before we ask, help us to ask only what accords with your will; and those good things which we dare not, or in our blindness cannot ask, grant us for the sake of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
Book of Common Prayer page 394

Holy Nativity's School Board's voting composition, under the Mission Possible framework, will consist of 1 to 3 parents, 1 to 3 parishioners, 5 to 7 community members, and the parish rector. Adhering to that framework, last week the School Board elected Tessa Gomes and Patti van Kuran members of the School Board Nominating Committee. 

The Vestry elected the School Board Nominating Committee's other two members at its July 18,meeting: Joe Kindrich  and Jeff Taylor . After the Nominating Committee has interviewed all candidates, the Committee will present its slate to the School Board for nomination for election to the Board by the Vestry when the Vestry meets as the Corporation of Holy Nativity School. This process will hopefully be completed by the end of August. If you want to serve on the School Board (or know of someone who would be a strong Board member), please send a brief bio and expression of interest to any of the four nominating
committee members.
