Family Ties

A Facebook-like feature for our church family

How is it like Facebook? It's a social medium.

How is it not like Facebook? As a Christian community, we strive to love one another and to share the goodness of God's creation. Political and controversial posts tend to polarize; totally opposite of why this feature is on our website. Please respect this sentiment.

Ash Wednesday
Psalm 95.10: Forty years long I detested that generation and said, "This people are wayward in their hearts; they do not know my ways.”

This is a disturbing verse. The word translated detested is a very strong verb. I check three separate Hebrew translations and they rendered the verb, provoked, loathed and wearied; although the notes on the last translation notes that the verb is a very strong verb and suggests a better translation as disgusted.

Today is Ash Wednesday one of the two most penitential days of our year, the second being Good Friday. Though I am not one who traffics in guilt, at times it is important for us to take stock. Today I ask myself if there is anything in my life that is provoking or wearying to God. Is there anything in my life that God loathes? O that there is nothing that disgusts God.

Discover something new this Lent!

As a priest I am expected to keep confidences. I take this expectation VERY seriously. However I want to expose one of the best kept secret at St Paul's.

Our website is a very well done collection of information and tools. Perhaps the best kept secret in our parish is the tool called Family Ties.  Here's the link:  

https://www.saintpaulsnaples.org/posts

This feature allows us to be in conversation with each other and to stay connected. 

To support this feature, to introduce it, and to provide a Lenten discipline for St Paul's this season, I will endeavor to post a daily reflection on a passage from the readings for the Morning/Evening Prayer. It will sort of be like St Paul's own in-house Day by Day, but with the added bonus of being able to respond and engage with others spiritually during the season of Lent.  

I hope this will be both an introduction to the extensive tools of our website and a way for us to grow deeper and closer during this peculiar Lent.

God bless us and nurture us in this holy season.
