ST MICHAEL'S IN THE MOMENT: January 11, 2018

Is it sometimes hard for you to put into words difference that Jesus makes in our world? I find that often someone else has put words to what I can only vaguely articulate. And so I offer our meditation from Taizé this week, a poem by Frederick Buechner.

Lord, Jesus Christ

Thou Son of the Most High, Prince of Peace, be born again into our world.
Wherever there is war in this world,
          wherever there is pain,
          wherever there is loneliness,
          wherever there is no hope,
come, thou long-expected one, with healing in thy wings.

Holy Child,
          whom the shepherds and the kings and the dumb beasts adored, be born again.
Wherever there is boredom,
          wherever there is fear of failure,
          wherever there is temptation too strong to resist,
          wherever there is bitterness of heart,
come, thou blessed one, with healing in thy wings.

Saviour,
be born in each of us who raises his face to thy face,
not knowing fully who he is or who thou art,
          knowing only that thy love is beyond his knowing
          and that no other has the power to make him whole.

Come, Lord Jesus,
          to each who longs for thee even though he has forgotten thy name.
Come quickly.
Amen.

 
LETTER FROM THE RECTOR 
Rev. Dina Ferguson

Welcome to St. Michael the Archangel Episcopal Church!

We are glad you are visiting our website and hope you will visit us in person soon. If you are looking for a spiritual home, we welcome you to worship God and grow in grace with us. If you are looking for a temporary place of spiritual rest and fulfillment as you travel on to another destination, you are welcome to spend a day or a month or more with us. 

St. Michael the Archangel Church is part of the Diocese of Los Angeles of The Episcopal Church. Our worship services use the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. Our early service at 8am is a quiet service using Rite I. The family service at 10am is a choral Eucharist using Rite II. The child care is always available at this service and we offer Sunday school beginning at 10am in Yeaton Hall on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sundays of the month during the school year.

We invite you to walk with us on your spiritual journey. Wherever that journey takes you, may you know the blessings of God who calls us all in love.

MISSION STATEMENT

Growing in God's Love.

Working in God's Spirit.

St. Michael the Archangel Episcopal Church is located in El Segundo, California, a coastal community in Los Angeles’ South Bay.  The city was founded in 1911 by Standard Oil Company and its name, which means “the second” in Spanish, is the site of Standard Oil’s second refinery. The east side of town is a bustling business mecca, home to twelve Fortune 500 companies. The west side features a quiet residential area and a quaint downtown. St. Michael’s is located on the corner of Richmond and Holly just west of the main downtown business district in the residential part of town.

 

Because of its centrality to the surrounding areas of Manhattan Beach, Playa Del Rey, and Hawthorne, St. Michael’s serves parishioners from across the South Bay, and routinely welcomes travelers passing through nearby LAX.
