In loving remembrance of George Davidson, an Elder of this church for 50 years, who died 4th of May 1891, and of his wife Helen Caruthers who died 7th of May 1885, erected by their daughter.

These Sundays of summer we are exploring the gospel through the stained glass windows of the sanctuary of St. Andrew’s. This morning the Mary and Martha window, the first that greets us as we walk in the main doors of the sanctuary.

I love the pomegranates that provide a border to this scene – how exotic they would have been in Kingston of the late nineteenth century! And I am moved by the dedicatory words – an unnamed daughter remembering her parents. I wonder if one of her parents was a ‘Mary’ and another a ‘Martha’? And what does being a ‘Mary’ or a ‘Martha’ mean anyway?

This story from the gospel according to Luke (10:38-42) certainly bears hearing and considering again, for oft has it been misunderstood and misapplied.

We warmly welcome you to join us. Certified child care is offered during the service and there is free parking on the streets around (please note that the time-of-day restrictions on Clergy Street north of Queen are not in effect on Sundays) and in the surface civic lot just behind the church off Queen Street.

Have a look at the Order of Service and bulletin below, and consider each hymn and prayer and announcement a personal invitation to join us in Christian worship, community and service. If you have any questions about forthcoming events and opportunities, please call the church office Tuesday -Thursday, 9 a.m. – noon, 613-546-6316, or email anne@standrewskingston.org

I know that in the Reformed/Presbyterian tradition, every Sunday is celebrated as an Easter Sunday, but I have to admit there is something special about THE Easter Sunday that comes round once a year! The strong hymns of praise, the wonderful gospel narrative, and even the display of flowers proclaim the joy that we know in the resurrection of Jesus, and in the presence and promises of the Living Lord with us. ‘Greetings’ and then ‘Be not afraid’ the risen Jesus spoke to those women on Easter Morn (Matthew 28:9-10), and words he speaks to each of us today.

Jesus Christ is risen today, hallelujah!
Thine be the glory, risen conquering son!
