Good News, Everyone!

Voice in the Wilderness for March is out! Fr John reflects on self-knowledge and authenticity, both nurtured through prayer. Karen Flynn writes a warm portrait of Edee Hedrick, our organist, celebrating 30 years of service! Lucy Eldridge waits for Spring Blooms and Bob Dodd recaps the schism.

Our Bishop, Rt Rev William Love, will visit St John in the Wilderness on Sunday, 21 June, an occasion for baptism, confirmation, or reception into the Episcopal Church. If you are interested, contact Fr John regarding preparation.

Climate Change Crisis Forum is now available for viewing. Next 30 Days of Action leads up to Earth Day.

Fr John
reflects on Rev Martin Luther King, Jr and his dream of justice, justice too often denied to the poor, the Black, the powerless. Read John's sermon of January 18.

Church of St John in the Wilderness is located in a park-like setting, Taconic State Park! We're on the Harlem Valley Rail Trail and Bash-Bish Falls is just up the road. Come, enjoy!

Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation (JPIC)  is a worldwide movement to promote social and economic justice and respect for the environment. Diocese of Central NY is adopting JPIC as an organizing principle for social justice.

We made a list of the many Good Causes supported by St John in the Wilderness. Can you add to this list?

Divine Reading/Contemplative Prayer Group: Put Wednesdays at 3 pm on your calendar and gather with us in the rectory for the Divine Reading/Centering Prayer Group.  This meditative approach to scripture will bring peace to your soul.

 A week later his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were shut, Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you." Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe." Thomas answered him, "My Lord and my God!" Jesus said to him, "Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe."
