Thank you all for a great parish meeting and brunch last Sunday. And thank you to all who helped make John’s memorial service such a lovely service. Special thanks to Cathie Lewis for her work on the reception and to Jen, Kaitlyn and Patti for operating the camera and projector.

The CDC has classified Carroll County in the low range for community spread of Covid, so masks are now optional in church. We will wear masks when the community spread range is in the medium or high range. The back section on the Memorial Garden side of the church will continue to be available for those who wish to be in an area where masks are worn. The community spread level will continue to change, so stay tuned.

This Sunday following the 10:00 service I’ll hold a workshop on creating a Rule of Life. A Rule of Life is a tool for helping us live our lives according to our Christian values and our personal core values. It provides us a structure for intentionally living our lives in congruence with these values and can be most helpful. Typical areas covered are spiritual health, mental health, physical health, vocational health and financial health. 

A good place to begin is identifying your core values, and we will begin with some exercises to help with this on Sunday morning.

Creating a Rule of Life may require two sessions, so the second session, if needed, will be held after the 10:00 service on Sunday, June 19. I realize this is Father’s Day, but I will be out of town on June 26 and July 3, so this is the best time to hold it.

Blessings, Caroline

Day of Pentecost - Trinity Sunday
The Collect 
Almighty and everlasting God, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity: Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory, O Father; who with the Son and the Holy Spirit live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
First Reading                        Acts 2:1-21
This lesson tells the story of the Holy Spirit filling the apostles and empowering them to share the message of the gospel with people of different languages. Clearly this was a most dramatic moment in the life of the early church, an experience described in terms of wind and fire. From this time forward the mighty works of God done in Jesus will be told to all the peoples of the earth, crossing barriers of language and culture.
The Second Reading     Romans 8:14-17
In this lesson we hear that when we are moved by God's Spirit, we become God's children and heirs with Christ. The spirit makes this experience possible by prompting our lips to call upon God as Father with the same Aramaic word (Abba) that Jesus used. This new relationship means that we are no longer required to be led by baser instincts. Our heritage is life, while we must also learn to share Christ's sufferings.

The Gospel  John 14:8-17 (25-27)

          In our gospel Jesus tells his disciples that in him the Father has been revealed, and he promises              the gift of another Counselor, the Spirit of truth, to be with them. The Lord is speaking with his              followers on the night before his death. Soon he will be taken away from them, but all that they              ask the Father will now grant in Jesus' name. As they continue to love Jesus and keep his                      commands, they will realize the indwelling Spirit who will take Jesus' place in their midst.

"God of peace and justice, we pray for the people of Ukraine today. We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons. We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow, that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them. We pray for those with power over war or peace, for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions. Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear, that you would hold and protect them. We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Amen.  

~Archbishop Justin Welby, Archbishop Stephen Cottrell

         When the Spirit of truth comes,
           she will guide you into all the truth;
           for she will not speak on her own,
           but will speak whatever she hears,
           and she will declare to you the things that are to come.

                           —John 16.13

Spirit is not some ghost floating around
but God, the energy of love itself,
in you.
You will not hear voices in the air
telling you secrets.
You will learn to attend to the Witness
who is there within you,
the Openness who knows the truth,
the Presence who gives voice to what is loving.
You will come to know what you know,
to truly see what you see and hear what you hear,
and walk on that path.
She will guide you, and day by day
you will learn to listen.
