Sunday Service Cancelled due to Hurricane Irma

September 9th, 2017 by sjl+

In light of the unpredictable nature of Hurricane Irma, Fr. Looker, in consultation with the Rector’s Council, has decided to cancel services for this Sunday, September 10th.  While there is a possibility that there storm may not severely impact Jacksonville until after services would have ended, there is also the possibility that major Bridges may close during our regular service times, leaving parishioners trapped and unable to return home.

In light of the frequently changing predictions regarding Irma’s path and impact, it is important to realize that our trust and hope is neither in forecasts nor sandbags, but The Lord God Almighty.  Being a Christian does not exempt us from the storms of life, either literally or metaphorically.  We do, however, have the promise that He will never leave us or forsake us. He speaks to the storm and says, “Peace. Be still,” and calms both the storm and the storm in our hearts.

Please be safe during the storm and pay for those who already have and will be impacted by Hurricane Irma.
