Dear Cathedral friends and Congregation of Saint Saviour,
Last Sunday, the Congregation made a brief foray into the celebration of Christmas with the annual Christmas party. Thank you to all who help make those events possible.
Tonight, a Ph.D. student from Union is coming to talk on James Baldwin's legacy of freedom. On Wednesday some students from JTS will join as they often do to look at the Hebrew Bible. On Sunday, the regular Bible Study takes place and Little Pilgrims will join a puppeteer to explore his craft and ministry. Then, Christmas and New Years are upon us and things will be a bit quiet program wise for a few weeks as we enter into the tremendous and diverse liturgical celebrations at the Cathedral.
Information on all that is below, but I pray you can find opportunities to find bits of peace, prayer, and service. This season marks a great deal of things to a great deal of people. The excitement of the approach of Christmas. The bustle of activities and preparations and parties and perhaps a bit of time for prayer and contemplation. It also marks the beginning of a new Church year and a chance to again begin anew. As always, if you have any ideas, any concerns, or simply would like to talk, never hesitate to contact me.
In the meanwhile, you have my prayers.
