Church of the Servant

7th Sunday of Easter
Psalm 97, John 17:20-26
Today's worship centered on the recent mass-shootings in Buffalo, NY and Uvalde, TX which took the lives of 31 innocent men, women, and many, many, children. The liturgy began with the Burial Rite, followed by saying the name of each victim, and then affixing their image to our sanctuary windows. The audio recordings below include two voices - The Rev. John Sosnowski and The Rev. Jody Greenwood. Together they constitute the full sermon message. A link to a video of the entire worship service is at the bottom of this post.
