We invite you to join us for this shortened service of Morning Prayer, with a conversational reflection on the Gospel lesson for today, Luke 10:38-42, Jesus with Martha and Mary. It’s just under 13 minutes long.
Welcome to Morning Prayer from the Anglican Parish of Pasadena and Cormack in Newfoundland Labrador. Today's worship service is led by Rev. Amy Richter, Rev. Joseph Pagano, Gail Roberts (reading our first lesson), and Vitória (Viih) Mahon (offering our music). Instead of a sermon, today we have a discussion about the gospel lesson, John's version of Jesus feeding the multitudes and walking on water.Viih Mahon is known by many in the parish. She is a 20-year-old university student studying travel and tourism and lives in Recife, Brazil. Viih came to Newfoundland first when she was 16 and won a scholarship competition. She lived with Paul and Colleen Harris in 2017-18 and again in 2019. While Viih was here she participated in many activities in the church and in the community. Viih is a strong Christian and recorded these songs especially so we could use them for worship today. Thank you, Viih! Parts of today's service were recorded in Pasadena, NL on the hiking trail by the Blue Ball stream, which is the sound you hear in the recordings.You can watch a video of the service here.After today, we're taking some vacation time. We'll see you again in September! Thank you so much for joining us today, and God's blessings and joy to you.
