We are a small Episcopal Church on the banks of the Rappahannock in Port Royal, Virginia. We acknowledge that we gather on the traditional land of the first people of Port Royal, the Nandtaughtacund, who are still here, and we honor with gratitude the land itself and the life of the Rappahannock Tribe. Our mission statement is to do God’s Will in all that we do.

1. Gospel and Sermon – The Rev. Thomas Hughes

Some of Tom’s themes in his sermon follow. Life is a process. Jesus leaves this before us and we are called to become one of the people to glorify God because we are one of God’s people. This means we are called to a deeper conscious awareness of God in our lives, sorting out God’s presense in my life and God’s presents to me.

We begin to have a deeper awareness of the meaning of things and presence of God. This is how we glorify God in how we live. People see God moving through our lives, we show it and this is how they come to know God as well.

We live a life where evil doesn’t dominate our lives since it has no ultimate power. We live in the love of God which is the ultimate power that is permanent and that all will be well. Presence of God in your life opens up of understanding of God and gives you a sense of purpose and direction in life that the world can’t give you. We should live a life process of becoming more we were. The purposes of God that are already within us will be unfolded
