Sunday Ready Podcast
Fr. Doug and David Dixon, Youth Minister, discuss the readings for the coming Sunday. Be Sunday Ready!
A Video Podcast Hosted by Fr. Doug and David Dixon!
Every Sunday in the Episcopal Church, we hear a lot of scripture! The weekly readings are drawn from a variety of biblical sources, they represent different time periods, and they are written in dramatically different styles. Even those with advanced degrees in biblical studies are often challenged to understand and connect all of these readings.
So, beginning Easter Sunday, Fr. Doug and David Dixon will be introducing a new video podcast entitled Sunday Ready. Each week, Fr. Doug and David will record and post an informal discussion of the upcoming lectionary readings.
Each recording will last 10-15 minutes and will be posted every Tuesday. We would encourage everyone to listen to this new podcast in preparation for Sunday worship. Let’s get ready to hear God’s Word!
On the select Sundays, we will have an evening Holy Eucharist outside on the field behind the Parish Hall at 5:00 PM. This is an opportunity for anyone who would like to attend a service but is not yet ready to go indoors.
Our next service is May 16.
Social Distancing and Masks are REQUIRED
Bring a blanket or chair
Dress for outdoors (this is a casual event)
You do NOT need to register in advance
