Thank You for the Wonderful Juneteenth Coffee Hour!
We are so appreciative of the delicious and bountiful coffee hour hosted by Gracia Marjeen Curlee-Gordon with the assistance of Betty Robinson. Gracia’s grandchildren, Kailey and Kahleed Gordon presented impressive visual displays and computer presentations on the history and importance of Juneteenth. Kailey and Kahleed are also acolytes at our 10:30 service. Their gifts helped to bring the Saint Mark’s Community even closer together.

Next Sunday’s Gospel; Luke 9:51-62 (6/26)
We journey every day to work, school, church, and store, but our greatest journey remains our life-long struggle to Christ. Today’s Gospel recalls the Samaritansrejection of Jesus as he journeys to Calvary and the garden of the resurrection. Jesus refuses vengeance upon the Samaritans and rebukes his own disciples and all who seek revenge. Daily, we encounter varied misunderstandings, abuse, and hostility. Jesus calls us of Saint Mark’s to forgive and forget: to decide now to turn our life journey into living the goals, motives, and lifestyle of Christ: to walk in his sandals. (Norm Carroll)
