St. John's Episcopal & Redeemer Lutheran--joint worshiping congregations--will gather for the Office of Morning Prayer this Sunday at 11:30 A.M. in the historic church building located since 1924 on the corner of Broadway & Pine. Assisting minister is Lee Gross; musicians are Barbara Crain and Douglas Tucker.

Father David Baumann, priest-in-charge, writes:
"THE TWENTY-SIXTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST (Proper 28) (November 18)
The first lesson is from the book of Daniel, in which the Lord shows Daniel a vision of the resurrection of the dead. Following up that theme, the Response is Psalm 16, which also teaches about the path of life which leads to 'fullness of joy'. The second lesson is from the letter to Hebrews, in which the author teaches believers are able to approach God boldly because their sins have been forgiven by the sacrifice of Jesus. Finally, the Gospel lesson is from Mark, in which Jesus teaches about the casting down of earthly might in the end times.

There will be no weekday Mass.
