First, all Sunday services will now be at 9:00 a.m. We will endeavor to have a supply priest come a couple times of month, at which points we will have the Eucharist service. We do have a few lay ministers in the congregation, so we have Morning Prayer services on all other Sundays.
One in our congregation has decided to hold Morning Prayer every Monday through Saturday at 7:30 a.m. throughout 2014. Anyone is welcome to attend at any time, being aware that it will simply be the service without music and will follow the Book of Common Prayer.
Let's go forth with the collect for this last day of the year: "Almighty God, you have poured upon us the new light of your incarnate Word: Grant that this light, enkindled in our hearts, may shine forth in our lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen."
