What’s just happened

Early Church Writings – Gospel of Matthew

We continue our exploration of the Early Church Writings, working our way into the Gospel of Matthew. This past week, we read aloud the first 5 chapters of the gospel and then delved into the historical context, learning about Matthew’s take of Jesus as the “new Moses” and how he built his case for that connection, between the genealogy, wise men, exile into Egypt, baptism, and then the Sermon on the Mount (on the mountain as when Moses received the…

Book Discussion on The Universal Christ

This past week we gathered to explore the ideas in Richard Rohr’s book, The Universal Christ. We meet every other week for lively discussions as well as a contemplative practice that settles our soul, for it is in resting in God that we are restored and can see the broadness and expansiveness of the Risen Christ among us. This week we began with our contemplative exercise. We engaged in a video of images taken of nature and reflected upon what…

Scripture Study

This past week we gathered first to hear the Letter to the Colossians read aloud, for that was what was always intended, that we would hear the good news, rather than read the good news, since it offers additional opportunities to engage with the sacred text. Often we find when we read the entirety of a book of the Bible, we gather a larger message, rather than hearing only a snippet of the text on Sunday mornings. This past week…

Giving to St. Andrew’s Mission

The giving of ourselves (heart, mind, body, soul, energy, talents, money, and commitment) to accomplish God’s mission in the world is one of the greatest joys of being a Christian. It is also an investment in your faith as well as in the future of God’s mission among us.

We are still, and especially, here for you during this pandemic. Please be here for us in your regular financial support of our ministries.

We ask you to mail in your weekly offering, or set up recurring payments through VANCO, or make contributions through our diocesan safe portal, or create a check payment from your bank, so our ministries can remain supported.

Exploring our Spiritual Path

Peace Prayer Flags

Sometimes, invitations come across our computer screen and our hearts seem immediately turned toward curiosity and engagement. That was true for me as I saw the offering by Oasis Ministries, through which I did my spiritual director training, for Contemplative Prayer Flags. I must admit, I was also intrigued enough by the thought that we could do this together sometime, so I wanted to see how they oriented this spiritual practice. I gathered my materials: 9” squares of fabric in…

The Closure of the Episcopal Home

For over 93 years. the mission of The Episcopal Home has been to provide the elderly in Central Pennsylvania a safe, loving community, and a supported living environment where they can receive the care they need. Through its long history, The Episcopal Home has been able to maintain the personal dignity of every resident and provide quality care for all those who have chosen to make their home with us. The support of the diocese through the years – both…

Lenten formation class

We gathered to discuss the spiritual practice of “Learn”. This series designed by The Episcopal Church ties each of the 7 spiritual practices to one of the readings during the Great Vigil of Easter. The one chosen for this week was Proverbs, which speaks about the force of wisdom present from before time with God the creator. We engaged with the idea that we are to take time each day to learn “about God” and to “learn God” — in…
