SR St Peter’s 100th Anniversary

Link: St Peter’s 100th Anniversary

Summary of what I was saying and why:
Sunday was approximately 100 years since the dedication of St Peter’s. We had a 1914 style service followed by a Parish lunch. It was a great day. All I wanted to do was say something about the history of St Peter’s, of faithful people.

Theology: Ecclesiology
Jesus Count:low
Good News: the Church is a product of faith.

What did I change on my feet?
Not much
What didn’t work/what did I miss?
I wish I’d spent more time on the early history of the Church.
What did work?
I didn’t know how specific to be about events that happen(ed) at St Peter’s. It seems the general reference was a good choice. I didn’t leave anyone out and I gave people space for the stories I hadn’t heard.

Other sermons I liked:

Priest Downs goes back to the Baptismal Covenant.

Priest Linman asks if we’re looking for the Glory of God.

Priest Giroux has a vision of the Kingdom we’re invited to.

(Here’s the list of people I usually listen to. Am I missing someone?)
The Anglican Church of Canada uses the Roman Ordinary Time numbering system instead of numbering the Propers. Because all of this is new to me, I’m now indicating both numbering systems.
