I’m a retired Anglican (Missionary Society of St. John, Missionary Diocese of All Saints) priest and often sit in a side pew (nowadays when we can get there, sitting in my walker. Difficult recently due to age/health – clergy now has come to us). Sometimes I hear or see noteworthy things which are interesting such as this שומרונים (Shomronim) Samaritan synagogue below. The featured image was taken by The River Avon in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, about 95 miles from me.
These posts are simply that which interests me at the moment. They are not approved by anyone (except my wife on occasion ). I pass them along and hope you enjoy them and will comment. I read all comments and put most of them on the blog. I really appreciate comments and any insights you may have.
“God loves you, God isn’t mad at you, He doesn’t count your sins against you, He forgives you and He will never leave you or forsake you.”
This is an affirmation we sometimes use at the end of our services.
A present day Samaritan ( שומרונים Shomronim) village. Yes, the samaritans of the Bible.
