Twenty Second Sunday after Pentecost (Year A)
In this Bulletin ...
My Dear Friends,
Today is HERITAGE SUNDAY. During this week we recall and affirm the love and the effort of those who have made significant contributions to the development of our nation. Do we as Jamaicans have that love for our people and our land that enables us to transcend the boundaries of race, class, creed and political persuasion? This love can propel us to unite as we stand to protect the social, moral and cultural fabric of our society. It is in unity that we will find the strength to do what is needed for the development of our nation. I share with you the following quotations from two of our National Heroes, Marcus Garvey and Norman Manley.
Marcus Garvey states: "My opponents say I am against white and fair-skinned people. This is not so. I am against the class system here which keeps the poor man down, and the poor are mostly black people. It is only natural therefore that their interest should be nearest and dearest to my heart .Let us all work together as fellow Jamaicans and ring in the changes for a new Jamaica."
Norman Manley declared: "No amount of economic good
will make our people a real unity. All efforts will be wasted
unless the masses of the people are steadily taken along the path
in which they will feel more and more that this place is their
home, that it is their destiny
Bishop Thompson has asked me to convey to you the following message:
Next Sunday we celebrate our Harvest Thanksgiving. This is an opportunity to give to God the best that we are and the best that we have. Please remember to use your Harvest envelope and give generously for the work of the Church. Your gifts of ground provisions and other products should be delivered here by 10:30 a.m. on Saturday. Our guest preacher at the 7:30 service will be The Very Rev. Canon Peter Mullings, Rural Dean for St. Andrew and Rector of the Church of the Ascension.
As usual, we extend a warm welcome to all our visitors sharing
in our worship today.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Before God and all mankind,
