FROM YOUR PRIEST:
"jesus in a box"
Jesus must have seemed like an easy target for the Sadducees. His preaching of eternal life seemed preposterous. The Sadducees could drive a truck through the holes in his preaching. So they confront Jesus with the proposition of the widow and her seven serial husbands, all brothers. Who is married to whom in the resurrection? This is bound to confound, and disprove. Of course, it is not the first or last time someone (maybe even you or me) will attempt to put Christ in a tidy little box tied up with string. It is very like us to conform the divine to the human, to impose our own limited sensibilities on the Word Made Flesh. We may think the Kingdom of Heaven looks pretty much the way, well, that we think it ought to look, and functions pretty much the way we think it ought to. Do we have anything in common with the Sadducees in this story?

St. Mary's will serve a hot breakfast from 8:30-9:45 EVERY SUNDAY. Rev. Bill will take the floor from 9:10 to 9:50 during breakfast and offer a lesson and reflection on the inexhaustible subject of being “Unabashedly Episcopalian.”
Fellowship, breaking bread, and bringing the congregation from both the first and second service together.
Come whenever breakfast is being served, at whatever time suits your schedule. The food is guaranteed hot and good!
It will be informal, casual, participatory, and fun! You don’t have to follow a syllabus be prepared. You don’t have to be “on time” either. Come when you can. Just eat good food and spend some fun time with your fellow parishioners!
They spent their time learning from the apostles, and they were like family to each other. They also broke bread and prayed together. Acts 2:42
