Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


The whole earth keeps silence

Something strange is happening - there is a great silence on earth today, a great silence and stillness. The whole earth keeps silence because the King is asleep. The earth trembled and is still because God has fallen asleep in the flesh and he has raised up all who have slept ever since the world began. God has died in the flesh and hell trembles with fear.
This is taken from an anonymous writer of the early church. It's a reflection for this holy day of waiting when Jesus was in the tomb and his disciples felt all was lost. The full text of the brief sermon is online here: A Homily for Holy Saturday

The Easter Vigil
Easter begins tonight at 7 p.m. with the Great Vigil of Easter when we will light the new fire, retell stories of our faith by candlelight and then enter into the joy of Easter.

Tomorrow, we will worship at 6:30 and 10 a.m. with Bishop Louttit celebrating and preaching. Easter egg hunts and a covered dish lunch will follow the 10 a.m. service.

    Wow, when you kindle a new fire, you don't mess around!

    Well, when you consider that KOP has at least six Eagle Scouts (including Fr. Frank), no one should be too surprised!!
