In 2014 the Diocese of Huron signed a Companion covenant with the Diocese of Amazonia, a new mission diocese in Brazil, around the city of Belem. St. Mark’s has been an active part of this relationship. Here is an update on this relationship from our parishioner Nigel Challen, who continues to keep regular communication with our partners there.
“Our Advent readings invite us to confirm our choice to follow Christ and to choose not to restrict ourselves or to be stuck selecting between to the lesser of two evils that our worldly powers consistently offer us.” For this Third Sunday of Advent, The Rev’d Rob Park offers prayers and a message reflecting our reading from Matthew’s Gospel, chapter 11:2-11.
“Jesus Christ is the ultimate authority in our lives. He is the person whose words and teachings we are to follow in all aspects of our lives.” This Sunday, on which we celebrate The Reign of Christ, The Rev’d Rob Park offers prayers and a message reflecting our reading from Luke’s Gospel, chapter 21:5-19.
