Deacon Alberta and St. Hilda of Whitby
It was a true joy to have the Rev. Deacon Alberta Buller join us as preacher this last Sunday. She wrote about her visit in the St. Francis Novato Newsletter: “Last Sunday, I had the privilege of serving as deacon alongside my former Anglican theology professor, The Rev. Dr. Daniel DeForrest London, at Church of the Redeemer in San Rafael. I was warmly welcomed by all.” I am looking forward to our future guest preachers: our own Br. Rich Atkinson on Christ the King Sunday (Nov 26) and the Rev. Kogen Dito-Keith (Zen Buddhist priest) on Dec 10. I actually had some more guest preachers lined up, but I have decided to cancel them since I am realizing that my time with you all is getting shorter and shorter. I look forward to preaching this Sunday, which is Stewardship Sunday, and I have also recorded a brief video sermon about St. Hilda of Whitby (614 – 680), whose feast day is today. You can watch the video sermon here. There are also links to many more video sermons below, in case you missed them or want to hear them again. I will be treasuring all of these upcoming Sundays with you and I invite you to join me at the Marin Interfaith Thanksgiving Eve Service at the First Presbyterian Church in San Rafael this upcoming Wednesday (Nov 22) at 7 PM. I also invite you to join Fr. Christopher Martin and me for our second Psalmathon on Saturday (Dec 2) at 2 – 9 PM. Drop by whenever and for however long you’d like. After all, what better way is there to prepare for Advent than by praying the Psalms!
