Morning Prayer for Sunday January 3

Welcome to Morning Prayer from the Anglican Parish of Pasadena and Cormack in Newfoundland. Merry Tenth Day of Christmas! Thank you to parishioners Dinah and Paige Durnford (reading our opening sentences), Marilyn Simmons (reading our canticle), Sabrina Short (reading our first lesson, Jeremiah 31:7-14), Irene and Warwick Hewitt (leading our prayers), and Ed and Debbie Humber and Lloyd Hollett (leading “Away in a Manger”). Joe gives the homily (based on John 1:1-18). Joe and I sing one of our favorite Christmas carols, “Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence.” We recorded the opening and closing to the service at the Tablelands in Gros Morne National Park (but we’re east of the bowl, at Winter House Brook, not at the bowl as I say in the video). Thanks very much for joining us today.

  1. Amy and Joe , tears of joy Nd fulness of love. This was a most beautiful service. Joe’s sermon so spoke to our hearts . The John Scripture is written on my heart . And I love what Joe said about God communicating in words to us. I cling to the light shining in the dart and the darkness not overcoming it. We are in a frightening time now of darkness and my trust is in the Light. Hearing the beautiful Carol with your lovely voice was a joy. And Away in a manger was perfect for the closing hymn.We love hearing that precious threesome sing glory to God . Blessings and love. The scenery is spectacular! Jim And Deede

    1. Thank you, Deede and Jim. We are grateful for you and the reminder to put our trust in the Light. We will share your appreciation with the singers too. With gladness as we prepare to celebrate the Epiphany, and with blessings and love, Amy and Joe
