Annual Meeting as Liturgy:
The Work of the People
Every Sunday we gather together the hearts and prayers of everyone present in the ancient call and response that is our liturgy. Liturgy literally means “the work of the people.” The Sunday Liturgy is only one of the many ways we work together for the life and joy of this parish and the world around us.
On Sunday, January 23rd, our liturgy celebrates the work we have done together over the past year as we gather for that most Episcopalian of rituals, the Annual Meeting. Our meeting is woven into our Sunday Eucharist as a reminder that it is the work of every other day of the week that makes our work together on Sundays possible, and it is our work on Sunday to celebrate in gratitude and hope the many ways in which God works through us as individuals and as a community.
Liturgy will start promptly at 10am, and will likely go until noon. We will have an opportunity to hear from our various ministry leaders, hear about our affordable housing progress, and have time for short conversation and reflection about our life together.
