Visiting St. Paul’s Logan again!
By Br. Thanasi (Thomas G.) Stama, St John’s Lancaster
Since moving to Lancaster and joining St. John’s, I have made it my goal to go down to St. Paul’s in Logan for when Deacon Paul Scanlan gives the homily. It is easy to do since my own parish’s Sunday Holy Eucharist is earlier enough to make their parish’s service at 11:30.
I sat with Deacon Bill Bales wife who I did not get to know the last time I was down. But Deacon Bill was off delivering holy communion to shut-ins. So In had her to myself. Nice one on one meeting with Catherine (might be a K). Before sitting down with her in the pew, met a big family sitting in the back of the church. I could argue they are in the front. Definitely front of the building.
The family was the Schlups (sounds like oops when you say it. ) Lovely family and they were bringing more home bound man named Davis. Never got his first name since we were doing Jefferson Davis jokes.
Deacon Paul Scanlan preached on St. Paul’s Conversion because it fit who Paul is as well as the church being St. Pauls. We were closer enough to the day. (Yesterday) Good solid sermon relating our preacher’s life and the Apostle’s and then he ended it by reading a brief biography on the life of St. Paul. It was delightful homily. He tied in how we all should be like the early church reaching and sharing our understanding of Christ so other too can enjoy the Faith we have. Great sermon.
