On Wednesday mornings we love to gather to study how we should live. Today we were in Colossians 2. We want to walk in him, being rooted and built up in him. We want to be firmly established in our faith, as you have been taught, and abounding with thanksgiving.
Come and join us next Wednesday at 10 a.m. as we tackle chapter 3 and learn more of how to live this type of life in today's world!

We were so grateful to be a part of the Good Friday service at Bo Diddley Plaza last week! #OneChurchOneGod

Again I am amazed how we were able to come together again, as well bring our congregations and worship teams together. It can be challenging at times bringing Pastors together with busy schedules, different cultures, different denominations and organizational structures. But last night I am still joyful after several months of planning this event it happened. God is shifting our City. #OneChurchOneGod, #ChurchofGainesville

Easter Sunday! Alleluia, the Lord is risen!

Hurricane Michael gets an upgrade to rare Category 5 status

As noted in the article, the upgrade to Category 5 status has little practical import for those affected by Hurricane Michael, but it brings attention to the fact that recovery is still happening. Our men are making a trip to the Panhandle May 3-5 to help residents in their efforts to rebuild their lives. If any men are interested in joining the group, contact Jose Boada.

Border Crossings - Day 25 - Servants of Christ

In our last repost from the Lenten Devotional series, Tony Ladd discusses how we can't stay where we are if we want to minister to others.

servantsanglican.org   “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1   A border crossing carries with it a sense of the unknown, perhaps even a hint of danger. However, we do not have to travel to foreign lands to cross borders. Our country is divided …

If you were in church this morning or watched us live, you heard David our music leader ask for prayers for Fr. Nelson. Please pray for his wife, family, and his friends.

Fr. Nelson Koscheski

Sep. 15, 1941 - Mar. 17, 2019

Beloved son, husband, father, grandfather, priest, poet, and friend

The Second Sunday in Lent

We shared a few weeks ago that Fr. Nelson needed our prayers. Please read below and keep praying.

Update on Father Nelson:

Dear Friends, three weeks ago Fr. Nelson was admitted into the ICU. After coding and life support he miraculously recovered to the point of consciousness, speech, and increased strength and mobility.

Last weekend, as they were preparing to move him out of intensive care, Nelson took a sudden turn for the worse. They had to put him back on the ventilator, as his lungs just couldn’t keep up with the demand. He remained in the ICU.

At the same time, we were going from church to church across the Southwest, sharing Nelson’s beautiful words and asking congregations to pray for his healing.

A few days ago a palliative care doctor visited Nelson and his family. She delivered the sobering news that Nelson’s quality of life is so poor, he will not be going home.

Today Nelson had another ventricular tachycardia event, triggering his defibrillator while he was conscious. This is torturous for him. They disabled this function on his heart device so it won’t happen again. Now he is on morphine and heavily sedated.

Pray for Nelson’s wife Judy and their children Travis, Kim, and Timothy. Pray for comfort. A family friend told me today that the Holy Spirit’s presence is so thick in his room.

Veni, Sancte Spiritus.

We are in El Paso on our way back to Dallas. We are praying that Father holds on until Sunday, so we can see him.

Before we left for tour, Nelson blessed me and told me he has some ideas. Even then he was thinking about how his life can be a ministry to others.

Love,

Ryan

Dr. Richard Horner, has visited us once a year for the last several years. We're looking forward to his return!

Pursue Holiness and Be Made a Saint - Day 33 - Servants of Christ

Hidden Figures - Day 16 - Servants of Christ

This Lent we're recapping some of the highlights from our last Lenten Devotional series. In this repost, Elena M. Rhodes talks about invisible ministers - the people who make it possible for the visible ministries to succeed.

http://www.servantsanglican.org/2018/03/01/hidden-figures-day-16/#

servantsanglican.org   In his book The Gifts of the Spirit, Derek Prince states that in ministry gifts, the believer himself (or herself) is Christ’s gift to His church. He is referring to the five ministry gifts Paul lists in Ephesians 4:11-13: apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. Worship leader, ...

Stay Focused in Lent, a playlist by wendellkbro on Spotify

If you’re looking for ways to stay focused on Jesus this Lent, let this be an aid. Thanks for sharing this playlist, Wendell Kimbrough.

open.spotify.com Lent is about surrender--letting go of things that feel urgent in order to see more clearly that which is most important. 40 days to fast, pray, and give, in order to help us draw closer to Jesus. Sound difficult? Here's a soundtrack to help us stay focused.

The Eighth Sunday after the Epiphany

For those following Fr. Nelson’s recovery. Fr. Nelson is the poet behind much of Liturgical Folk’s music, a group whose songs we sing often.

Update on Father Nelson:

It’s Day 9. To God’s praise we are accustomed to seeing miraculous improvement every day. Today is hard, though.

Nelson is terribly uncomfortable. He is having great difficulty swallowing. Please pray for healing and strength to return to his throat. It would be such a relief for him to be able to drink water. Let’s pray boldly for him to pass the swallow test by tomorrow.

He is also having trouble sleeping, as you might imagine. Pray for deep, healing sleep tonight.

His heart and lungs are doing well, but his kidneys are just not working. Pray for God to wake them up. Meantime, it’s dialysis. So grateful for medical technology and incredible hospital staff.

Despite the discomfort, Nelson is getting stronger. He sat up in a chair for a good while today. He is able to assume the Thinker’s position, bringing his left hand to his chin, and some tone is returning to his voice, which is such a joy to see and hear.

Keep praying. He still has a long way to go.

Should a Christian Observe Ash Wednesday? - Servants of Christ

Fr. Michael La Cagnina wrote a blog post back in 2017 that walks through the history and the meaning behind the ritual of Ash Wednesday. As you prepare for Ash Wednesday and Lent, why not give it another read?

http://www.servantsanglican.org/2017/02/27/should-a-christian-observe-ash-wednesday/

servantsanglican.org    Since the Bible nowhere explicitly commands or condemns such a practice, Christians are at liberty to decide prayerfully, whether or not to observe Ash Wednesday. If a Christian decides to observe Ash Wednesday and/or Lent, it is important to have a biblical perspective. In this summary of Ash ...

The Seventh Sunday after the Epiphany

The poet behind the music of Liturgical Folk, Fr. Nelson Koscheski, is fighting for his life due to complications from a heart procedure yesterday. We enjoy their music and his words often in our services and his family and friends would appreciate your prayers for his complete recovery.

Update on Father Nelson:

Judy, Nelson’s wife, wanted us to sing some songs at his bedside. It was very moving. A couple people in the room noticed his body responding to the music. His blood pressure went up and down and up and down again, and his lips moved slightly. He’s fighting, y’all.

Thank you for your prayers. There have been small miracles. His kidneys are doing better. The color in his face is better. But he needs a big miracle.

Please pray for Nelson’s heart. His blood pressure needs to come up. Also, pray for him to start breathing on his own, especially throughout the next two nights and days.

Thank you!
