Car Dealer rep: What kind of condition would you say your car is in?
Dealer Rep: Laughs Well, let's see what the appraiser thinks.
Appraiser enters the room. Pats me sympathetically on the shoulder and says..
Appraiser: I think it's time to let it rest.
This is the way I am feeling about this blog. I do not believe its condition is terrible but a blog does require energy to maintain that I do not seem to have at present.. When I began the blog, St. James-Santee did not have a functional website or an e-newsletter and we now have both. We will keep it online but won't be updating it. If you have read it regularly, thanks! Perhaps, we will revive it in the future. Perhaps a Church member will be inspired to pick it up. Who knows? Until then...
Thanks again for visiting and feel free to poke around the remaining content!
Yrs in Christ,

The Last Sunday after the Epiphany of our Lord Jesus Christ
Opening Prayer: As my mind is bent to tell of bodies changed into new forms, my God, who wrought these very changes, breathe on these my understandings, and bring down my thoughts in unbroken strains from the world’s first beginning even unto the present time. May these be the words to say, may they be what need be heard. Amen
Homily – The Transfiguration
Closing Prayer: God, grant us the audience of Transfiguration through the pages of Scripture, in the kindness of another’s face, from the awakening earth. Where there was bare ground, life emerges heavenward. The tree, skeletal and dormant yesterday, is irrepressible today. Let us not accumulate these springs as ever-increasing anniversaries, rather let us embrace this life as a countdown to a Promise when the ultimate metamorphosis be ours. Until that moment, may we be an audience pleasing to you, rehearsing our part until we hear that Voice. Amen.
