A Daily Cup last week, one written by yours truly, began like this: “As is likely true for many others, yesterday was one of the most memorable days that I have ever experienced in church.”
Indeed, last Sunday was a remarkable day. But ever since I posted “Only God”https://stalbansparish.wordpress.com/2015/08/17/only-god/ I’ve had second thoughts about that opening sentence. I’ve been asking myself:
What about the day that I (or you) was baptized?
What about the day just a few years ago (for me like 23) that yours truly (or you) was literally lost then found by God’s amazing Grace?
What about the day that an experience of the Holy Eucharist changed Sara Miles’ life forever? http://www.saintgregorys.org/community_service/groups/name/C148
What about the Sunday just a few weeks ago when at the early service the congregation was invited to gather around the altar for the The Great Thanksgiving after which a newcomer came (in tears) to one of our priests saying that they had never experienced Holy Communion with such intensity and “felt like a disciple of Jesus, being sent out into the world to do God’s work”?
What about yesterday when someone told me after the service that they heard God beckoning them to a deeper kind of faith because by virtue of the liturgy they sang the words “for thou shalt surely bless all those who live the words they pray“?
What about the day(s) when God spoke to you?
So Mea Culpa. “Through my fault” I failed last Monday to recognize what happens every Sunday. If you read this post and you have had a memorable day at church share it please. Right here, where everyone can see. It’s easy to do. Then log back on and see what people say. My hunch is that every single Sunday at St. Alban’s church was, is and forever will be a memorable, not to mention remarkable, day for someone. Thanks be to God.
p.s. thank you for prayers for my daughter. She is fine and was traveling and that’s why I asked for your prayers.
