The parish of Western Shore returns to its regular schedule of services; two are held each Sunday at 9:30 and 11:00, alternating between the churches. Today we were in St. Mary’s for 9:30 and St. John’s for 11:00; all services are Holy Communion.
I have felt immediately welcomed into the parish and Bonnie and I have been able to share some reflection and discussion time as we drive together between the churches. Her sermon today was a reflection on some key events of 2010 in the parish; this was a wonderful way for me to gain some insight into the life of the parish beyond the worship experience. This is a parish that engages in any undertaking with full commitment to doing an excellent job, whether it be building a foundation under St. Mary’s or launching a parish cookbook. They trust God in all they do and allow themselves to be guided by the Holy Spirit.
