The Rev. Bryce Sangster
St. George’s Church, Hastings, celebrated St. George’s Day on Sunday, April 24th. After the 11:00 am Communion service, everyone went downstairs where a lovely lunch was enjoyed by all. The Rev. Bryce Sangster called on Pat O’Brien to say a few words about Saint George. Pat gave a very interesting presentation. Seemingly, Saint George never set foot in England, but he became the patron saint of England over a thousand years after his death. His cross is one of the three elements that form the Union Jack which is the flag of the United Kingdom.
Thoughts for Summer
This time of year is sometimes referred to as ‘Ordinary Time’. Our Christian year begins with Advent and has no real down time until after Trinity Sunday. This includes of course, Christmas and Easter with all those excitements. It is not surprising we now need time for rest and relaxation.
However, “Ordinary Time” is not down time, but time to live out the message of Christmas and Easter and beyond.
Therefore: I bring you this Gospel passage for consideration:
‘Why do you call me “Lord, Lord”, and do not do what I tell you? I will show you what someone is like who comes to me, hears my words, and acts on them. That one is like a man building a house, who dug deeply and laid the foundation on rock; when a flood arose, the river burst against that house but could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who hears and does not act is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the river burst against it, immediately it fell, and great was the ruin of that house.” Luke 6:46-49
From the Editor's Desk
The Voice Newsletter
The Voice has an important role to play in our parish life. I want to congratulate Joan Lane on the wonderful job she has done over the past several years in seeing this publication grow and develop into what we see today. As she retired from the job of editor, we saw a crisis arise when no-one would take over this position: it would mean the end of The Voice. Not wanting to see that happen, I volunteered to do it. My primary objective is now to find someone who would like to be editor.
It has always been my belief that as many parishioners as possible need to be involved is some sort of role in the church’s life. The ACW provides opportunity for many ladies to do something, so does the choir, the alter guild, and the advisory board. I know that an involved parish is a healthy parish. The Voice allows folks with a bent for writing to bring their talents to the fore.
It is my hope that I am just the temporary caretaker of this publication, and that we will soon have a more capable and talented editor than I.
Christ Church ACW Spring Luncheon
That mid-May Saturday dawned dull, damp and dreary. Not so in the Jenkins Hall where a light, summery welcome greeted all comers. The dining tables were so pleasantly set in floral design; the bake table groaned under its weight of goodies – cakes, pies, confectionery, preserves and so much more. Not least, so many ladies of the A.C.W. were on hand to greet and chat with all who came.
