This morning our 10 am Eucharist was celebrated by Father Roger, as Father Stephen is taking a short break.Now we are in Epiphany we traditionally look at the events of the life of Our Lord and  this morning we  looked at the Baptism of Our Lord by John the Baptist by water and the Spirit. Father Roget in his sermon took up the theme of the Spirit in supporting and inspiring us in our Christian Life. These are difficult times with much uncertainty in the world, but the Christian faith leads us to trust in God for guidance, the Church is active in these times both Pope Frances and Archbishop Justin are working to bring peace to the world, and the spirit takes us along the path of a true christian life if we let it guide us.
The Choir sang the Ave Verum Corpus in the setting by WA Mozart as the anthem. There was coffee after the service.
