Pastoral Epistle – April 13, 2022

Posted on: April 13th, 2022 by St. Bede Anglican Church

Beloved Congregation,
Greetings in Jesus!

For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as the LORD our God is to us, for whatever reason we may call upon Him?
‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭4:7

This is the most significant week of the year.  We, who know the Lord are immensely blessed. Our Lord is always near to us.  He is just a call away.  It’s all because Jesus was willing to lay down His life for us on a cruel cross. May we continue to draw close to our Lord as we journey through the week of Passion. 

Praise God for our Palm Sunday Service.  Our Sunday School children did such a wonderful job.  Thank you Ramya and James and our youth for making it so nice.
