Be In The Know!!!

From the Service of the Sacrament: “Holy, holy, holy Lord God of Sabaoth.” Three times the angels cry out: “Holy, Holy, Holy!” which is an indication of the threeness in one God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This is the Name in which we are baptized. We have been made a part of God’s family. And so we are called to live lives that are in harmony with our new family. We are to be godly, and to live in God’s image. As God is loving, kind, and generous – so are we called to be.
