Sunday Ramblings

Today we once again traveled to the Anglican church for an exchange of readers. I am beginning to feel almost as much a part of that congregation as my own. They are extremely welcoming, in fact waiting for our second reader to appear, I got to visit with a few of their parishioners and we had quite the conversation going. 

Really the Anglican communion service is very much like ours. Almost identical responses, the sign of peace and the readings are pretty close as well. It makes it so much easier to be in a place where one knows what is going to happen.

Next week the Anglican readers will be coming to our church. Usually it is an adult and a youth, don't know if it will be that way this time. They have some excellent youth lectors in their community. Never too early to get the youth involved.

The rest of my day has been spent curled up for the most part on the recliner, knitting in hand. It started to snow as I left the church and has more or less been continuing to do so all day. Because of that I have been catching up on old episodes of Outlander and will almost be at the proper season in a few days. That will be very nice.

Tomorrow I have prayer shawl ministry in the afternoon so will be really busy in the morning trying to get as much done as possible before I leave. I have, however, reached the conclusion that what isn't done can always be done the next day (or in some cases later yet in the week).

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. Thank you for visiting my blog!
    What is a prayer shawl ministry? (I'm an Anglican priest here in the UK, by the way.)

    1. We get together every second week and knit shawls that we say a prayer over as we knit. Our priest will bless them all in January and then they will be given out to those who are sick, suffering or in mourning.

      I do love your blog, may not always post, but visit every chance I get.

      The Catholic church here in my province of Saskatchewan signed a covenant agreement with the Anglican church (I believe this type of covenant was signed in Rome as well). It states that there is more that binds us together than pulls us apart and where ever possible we are to share in Christ's message to all peoples.

      We do have an Anglican parishioner that joins us for our prayer shawl ministry.

      God bless.

  2. Your day sounds appealing, TV catchup, resting in a chair knitting …..Bliss!
