Jonathan Daniels Sunday
Sunday, August 19, 2019
Our guest preacher this year at our annual Sunday service honoring our hometown saint, Jonathan Daniels, will be the Rev. Jason Wells, executive director of the NH Council of Churches. Members of the Grand Monadnock Youth Choirs will also be with us in addition to our own St. James Choir. All are welcome
Wednesday at 11:30AM - The Pocket of Peace Prayer Service with liturgy from "Daily Prayer for All Seasons" followed by quiet centering prayer. A wonderful oasis in the middle of a busy week. Takes place in the front choir area of the church. Please enter by the rear office door and come upstairs through the common room.
Space for Prayer:
St. James is often open for prayer during the week for people to enjoy a respite from their day for centering and prayer. Watch for the sign out front, which is posted when the church is open for prayer.
The healing prayers offered at St. James Episcopal Church (near the West Street entrance, beside the Baptismal Font) during communion at the 10:00 am service are informal and guided by what people ask for when they come for prayer. All of us agree that the issues shared, even glorious thanksgivings, are held in complete confidence, not shared with anyone including the rector, or any other clergy (without permission). They are powerful moments of connection with God that do not attempt to solve problems. They are for that instant an acknowledgement of God’s presence, a receiving of that which was asked.
Anyone is welcome to bring others to join them including children. If you are interested in becoming a healing minister contact Don Hart, for more information.
