Calvary Letter to the Editor Published

Part of our responsibility as followers of Jesus is to bear witness to God’s desire that human communities be places of justice where all people can flourish together. Jesus spoke to this issue when he urged us to be “salt”, “light”, and “leaven” in our world.
In this spirit, Calvary’s Dismantling Racism team submitted a letter to the Columbia Missourian. The letter deals with the issue of Community Policing, and is intended to be a helpful and thoughtful contribution to the current discussion.
The letter was published in the Missourian, and I commend it to your consideration. You may read it here: Editorial

All Services Cancelled for Sunday, January 13

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

 

With much shoveling to do before most of us can even get out our driveways, and more snow predicted, the Sr. Warden and I think it wisest proactively to cancel all services tomorrow, January 13, and try to get the word out well in advance.

Thank you for your understanding.  Stay warm and enjoy the beauty of God’s sparkling creation!

Fr. Knute

Welcome to the Season of Advent

 

Welcome to the Season of Advent, when the light of Christ can bring hope to the world.

Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
