Dawna's Message 24th September

This week we celebrate our Patronal Feast - St. Michael and All Angels' day (transferred from September 29).  The readings for the day give us windows into the ministry of St. Michael and his colleagues and offer us a challenge and a blessing for our own.  The word demon refers to that which negatively torments or possesses us and is not of God. God is love and that which is not love is to be relegated as far from us as the east is from the west. Part of the challenge Is being willing and finding ways to let go those things that possess and torment us.  Fighting demons is hard work and we need companions on the way to assist, encourage and remind us that that we are not fighting this battle on our own. Following the 10:30 service we will share a celebratory meal with those who walk this path with us and we will be fortified as we continue sharing our gifts as a community whose namesake is St. Michael the archangel.
