Talk about diversity! The day of Pentecost was a riot of colour and sounds and praises. Read about it yourself in the Bible - Acts chapter 2. This is exactly what this offering of worship at St. Cuthbert's is. We are glad that you can join us.
Watch for Barney! For young and old - Barney is our "Continuity Officer" and will show up 4 times throughout the service, in four different places. Send Pastor Paul an email and let me know where and when you spy Barney, named Barnabas, "the son of encouragment" [email protected] Barney is rocking the lockdown 'up-do'.
Do you need shelter in these trying times? Ever forget what day it is or whether you should be at work or emptying the dishwasher at home? You have come to the right place! Jesus offers to shepherd us, protect us and lead us.
"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful." Hebrews 10:23
Here are a couple of reflections from Holy Week by Pastor Paul that were never posted due to technical difficulties.
"The Lord's Supper" (8 minutes) and "Jesus Washing the Disciples' Feet" (11 minutes). These were both intended for Maundy Thursday.
This Service of Holy Communion is about 12 minutes long. I encourage you to explore the Durham Cathedral website www.durhamcathedral.co.uk

Lori reflects on the life of Elijah at the mouth of the cave and how the image speaks to her life. The text is 1 Kings chapter 19 and it is a gripping story.
There will be another Constant Contact email tomorrow on the line up of videos: another meditation on the Last Supper (Maundy Thursday Evening) and Good Friday Stations of the Cross (9 a.m.) and the Ecumencial
The liturgy begins with, "Hosannah in the highest!" as Jesus entered Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives. And it ends with the crowds yelling, "Crucify him!" Even his closest disciples deserted him. And we think we are living in challenging times!
This Sunday we had planned to host a service of Confirmation and Reception. There were 10 people preparing to be confirmed and one to be received into the Anglican Church (was baptized and confirmed in the Roman Catholic Church). So this is a post-poned celebration that will be rescheduled!
