A sermon entitled "Follow the Leader" continues the Lenten sermon series at St. Luke's Episcopal Church of Sedona on Sunday at both morning masses.
Sundays' sermon is the second in a series of six, and is based upon the epistle reading for the day, from the fifth chapter of Saint Paul's letter to the Ephesians, and also the reading from the 11th chapter of the gospel according to Saint Luke, in which Jesus cast out a devil from a man who could not speak.
Sunday's mass hymns will include Ray Palmer's "My Faith Looks Up to Thee" and J.S. Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Redeeming."
Each Sunday Holy Communion, a quiet liturgy without music, takes place at 8 am, and is followed by Morning Prayer at 9 am. The principal service of the day is the 10 am Solemn High Mass, and includes hymns, a sermon, singing of the liturgy and the full ceremonial of the historic Church.
St. Luke's is an Anglo-Catholic parish, part of the Continuing Church movement in the United States, and a member of the Anglican Diocese of Arizona. Its bishop and rector is the Right Reverend David Gregory McMannes, who founded in parish in 1988.
The church is open weekday for private prayer and meditation, and is located at the corner of Highway 179 and Meadowlark Drive in the Chapel area of Sedona.
