A Thursday Reflective Moment from Fr. Joe
October 30, 2014
This coming Sunday is “All Saints’ Sunday” (in addition to being the predetermined Sunday whereby we go back on eastern standard time and regain an hour of sleep – allegedly). On Sunday, you will hear much spoken about “sainthood” and “holiness.” A little girl from among us will be baptized, and we welcome her into the “holy people of God” as a Christian.
So here are some questions: Do you make your choices and decisions based upon your having been called by God to a holy life? Is your “membership” in our (or any) church a matter of nostalgia, convenience or commitment? The day you were baptized, you became a member of a people marked by “the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.” Do the words “time, talent and treasure” take on that meaning? I choose what I do with the things given to me because I ‘ve been called to be holy. I am called to be a Saint.

This year’s John Lewis Day Celebration was a great success despite the rain! St. Paul’s Chapel was filled with music performed by many different musicians including the Antioch Baptist Church Choir.
