Welcome to St. John's community. We are honored to serve Christ, and to open our doors to all. Please feel free to join us for worship. St. John's can trace its history to the founding of Jamestown. The parish is over 350 years old, and the church building itself has stood for 2 and a half centuries. St. John's saw the American Revolution and served as a camp ground for troops during the Civil War. Through it all, St. John's has been a place of worship and a home for those seeking communion with Christ. St. John's has a rich and abiding history. Today, it is as it was... a place to find and be found by Christ.

Reflection for Sunday October 6, 2013

There was quite a turn out of visitors today - a couple who will be married in a little bit and 2 women and one of the lady's 2 little girls. The 4 folks live nearby and I hope they come back regularly.

With all that it was a neat day with tough readings - Lamentations; dashing children's heads; Paul to Timothy (rejoice that you might suffer for God); and faith of a mustard seed. And yet, there is a story to be had that shares our relationship with God in a constructive manner. Ultimately we know that God loves us - warts and all - knowing full well what we are capable of, for good or for ill. The tough parts of our story help others find a way to reconcile with God - even when they are "bad and ill mannered." I invite your comments.



Readings: Lamentations 1:1-6; Psalm 137; 2 Timothy 1:1-14; Luke 17:5-10
