During the Advent season, Father John offers a brief mid-week Zoom prayer.
The focus is HOPE. May we can help each other “as we hope in the future God offers us.” An Advent scripture text will be read twice. Participants will be asked if there is a word or image or phrase that stands out to them. Father John will offer a reflection from a spiritual writer. There will be a question for the group to ponder and converse about for 10 minutes. The session closes with a prayer.

Advent Series: Preparing to Become the Beloved Community Sundays, 4:00 pm beginning November 29
We gather to pray, engage the scriptures and have conversations - some with a partner and some with the larger group. We close each session by lighting the candle(s) of the Advent Wreath and praying together. The themes for the four weeks are:
Telling the Truth about Our Churches and Race
Repairing the Breach in Institutions and Society
Practicing the Way of Love in the Pattern of Jesus
Proclaiming the Dream of Beloved Community
Compline, sometimes referred to as night prayer, is the last prayer of the day in many liturgical traditions, including the Episcopal church. It is traditionally said or sung prior to retiring for the day. Many people from our St. James’ family helped to create this short, peace filled service. We hope that you will watch it often and that it will enhance your personal worship.
If you would like to watch our first Compline video, you can view it on YouTube.
