Wrap’n Roll on December 15, 2013
This third Sunday of Advent brought several blessings. The Reverend Canon Dr. John Jorden of our own Anglican Diocese of the Great Lakes visited St. Augustine’s. He is special to our congregation, for he traveled the journey with us as we developed into a parish almost three years ago. Today, he blessed a new traveling communion kit the church has purchased, and he celebrated the Eucharist. After the service, several gathered for some home cooking before our Wrap’n and Roll. Listening to some swinging Christmas music, we wrapped toys, clothes, and gift certificates for two deserving families. St. Augustine’s plays Santa every Christmas. Our joy is great in sharing God’s gifts with others. Plan to join us next December to share your gifts and the love of Christ for others.
