Fr. Terry’s Sermon Series

For the next two months, (beginning Sunday morning, July 11), we will be embarking on an in-depth, but winsome study of Paul’s letter to the Church at Ephesus. While not the longest or the fullest of his letters, the letter to the Ephesians stands in relation to Paul’s other letters as the Empire State Building or Eiffel Tour stands to New York or Paris, for it offers a breathtaking view of the entire landscape of salvation. From it you get a bird’s eye view of the early church’s understanding of one theme after another: God, the world, Jesus, the Church, the means of salvation, marriage and the family, and spiritual struggles. Like someone used to strolling around the city and now suddenly sees familiar places from unfamiliar angles, and sees how they relate to each other and to the city as a whole, we will quickly find how the riches of God’s grace work together for His purposes. So, mark your calendars and join us Sunday mornings as we explore the fascinating vision given by this letter!

Exploring our diocese’s “Godly Heritage:” Historic Brandon Episcopal Church

Special and On-Going Opportunities

Field Trip to Historic St. Luke’s Church:  We have a great group who will be attending our parish field trip to Historic St. Luke’s on Saturday, August 14. If you would like to add your name to the list, please contact me directly.  The deadline has past but we would love all to join us for the tour and for lunch afterwards.  The cost is $5 per person for the tour.   Rather than ask the group to meet at the church, I will provide a detailed driving map to each driver, and suggest that each car drive directly and plan to arrive at St. Luke’s about 10:30 am for the 11:00 am tour.  That should give everyone time to see the grounds and the gift shop before the tour starts.  And we will offer rides to anyone who prefers not to drive.  The driving time is a little under two hours from Good Shepherd.
