"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

Our quiet little service on Christmas day

While St. Vincent's often sees more than 600 worshipers on Christmas eve, our Christmas morning service is a quiet, reflective Eucharist which typically has about 35 congregants. This year we saw a "white Christmas" for the first time more than three decades here in North Texas, which did reduce attendance at the Christmas eve Eucharists. But surprisingly, despite icy streets, more forty people came on Christmas day. It was a lovely service at which Fr. Kalimi of our African Fellowship celebrated the Holy Mysteries and I was honored to preach.

Merry Christmas to all!
