St. James Anglican Church, Kansas City will present the GOOD FRIDAY WAY OF THE CROSS at J.C. Nichols Fountain – Mill Creek Park, Kansas City this GOOD FRIDAY.
We wanted to take the church to the market place and bear witness to the faith vis a vis significance of Good Friday when Christ died for the sins of the world. Its easy to have the service within the confines of our church. How wonderful it is to express our faith and witness to the same, with the hope of touching someone and bringing them close to the heart of God.
Beautiful things happened and are worth mentioning. The photo in the ad above is from Claire Kean, a teenage photographer who took the picture during her hike in Germany. Claire is a wonderful and generous young lady, very affable and kind. She is a great painter and photographer. It was wonderful meeting with her family on our way back from a Writers Conference. Thank you Claire and may the Good Lord continue to guide you.
Wanting to display this brochure in grocery stores, I went to HyVee’s on stateline. The lady was very sweet and said she would display it on the community board. Went to Mcgonigles the meat market, where we are frequent visitor. One of the cashiers said, “you need to get the owners permission.” I was in my black clerical shirt. I walked in and he said, “you want me?” I said yes. “What did I do?” he said looking at my clergy wear. He was very kind and asked me to display the brochure on the bulletin board. God bless him.
The liturgy and the scripture readings during this week lead up to the climax of the Holy Week, the Passion, Death and Resurrection of our Lord. Salvation extended to us time and time again, divine forgiveness is poured upon us over and over again. “But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself.”(John 12:32)
