Newsletter for July 4

Please join us for worship Sunday, July 4, at 11 a.m. via Zoom.
 
The rector writes: "As Christians, we pray for our country, but we must not make an idol of it. We may love our nation as we love our families, but we must not ignore its failings. We seek to learn and tell the truth about our history and our present. We are called to contribute to our common life, care for the poor, do justice and love mercy, welcome the stranger and love our enemies."
