A Collect for the Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost
Grant, O merciful God, that your Church, being gathered together in unity by your Holy Spirit, may show forth your power among all peoples, to the glory of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Fall into Kerygma
The Kerygma course, Reading the Bible as a Whole, begins on Monday, September 13 at 10 am in the Wye Parish House and on Zoom. The fall course is a weekly discovery of the Old Testament beginning with Genesis and concluding with the Visions of the Messiah. For those who are new to Kerygma, the resource book is available this week at Parish House. I look forward to welcoming everyone to this vision of reading the scriptures together.
