The Rev. Trevor R. Babb, Rector, Christ Church New BrightonFrom the Rector's Desk

Dear Saints of God,

Greetings to you in the name of our Risen Christ!

As we celebrate again the good news of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, I pray that the spirit of Christ's love remain constant in your life. Resurrection is about renewal, and restoration, this means that out of every Good Friday our period of adversity there is grace and hope. I invite us to live with this truth.

This week, we welcome our Canon for Congregational Development and Vitality, The Reverend Canon Victor Conrado, who will be preacher and celebrant at 8:00AM and preacher at 10:00AM. Please plan to be at worship to welcome Canon Conrado. Immediately following the 10:00AM service, he will meet with the warden and vestry as well as treasurer and finance chair.

Again, special welcome to Canon Victor Conrado.

Respectfully,
Fr. Trevor+

Did You Know?

Did you know that more Presidents have been Episcopalian than other Christian denomination?
A quarter of our Presidents from early American history to the 20th Century, have identified as Episcopalians! More presidents have been Episcopalian – 11 – than any other Christian denomination. Several of the nation's earliest presidents, including George Washington, James Madison and James Monroe, were Episcopalians. But since the death of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1945, the only two Episcopalian presidents have been Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush.

Did you know Episcopal tradition adheres to the "Nicene Creed?
An important part of the Episcopal tradition is a statement of belief known as the "Nicene Creed." A "creed" is simply a statement of what a person or a group believes. "Nicene" refers to the ancient city in Eastern Europe called Nicea, where it was formally adopted. The Nicene Creed is a foundational text for most Christian churches, expressing a basic understanding of the nature of God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Church.

Did you know The Book of Common Prayer contains "instructions" for public worship?
The first Book of Common Prayer was created in England more than 350 years ago, with a goal of rendering the prayers of worship in the language of the gathered people instead of the language of the educated elite.
This tradition of common-language worship continues today and the Book of Common Prayer has been translated into nearly every spoken language on earth. The most recent revision of the Book of Common Prayer in the Episcopal Church was in 1979 and allowed for the choice of either "traditional" or modern language.
