"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Waning Days of Summer

Here in North Texas it is still hot. The high on Labor Day is expected to be 98 degrees Fahrenheit. But the "traditional" end of Summer is Labor Day, so I thought I would post a nice image that my father took last Friday of the garden of two of our parishioners at St. Vincent's, George and Marion Midgley. I am credibly informed that this fine garden is Marion's work alone. (She is pictured with me above.) It was lovely to visit their home, and Marion prepared a fine meal for my dad and I as well. Thanks for the hospitality, Marion and George!

I would also like to take this chance to offer a prayer for all those folks along our Gulf Coast in the path of Hurricane Gustav. May God extend His protective hand over the region and its people, and keep them safe, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
