The Lord's Day
It was the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost across the Episcopal Church--Proper 6 in our lectionary cycle--except in churches under the patronage of St Barnabas, which had the option of keeping their patronal feast day on the Sunday following the feast, which was last Tuesday. We exercised that option today at St Barnabas', Havana, a town that sits on the east bank of the Illinois River about 50 miles NW of Springfield. It's a small church community, but our worship and fellowship had a great deal of vitality. I was blessed by being among them.
