Fr. Jim Hurd's Easter Message 

 St. Thomas of Canterbury

Our little church, St. Thomas of Canterbury in Halfmoon, sees modern life as fragmented, in a hurry and harried. The individual man, woman and child is caught up in relentless frenzies and is ultimately alone. We strive for a community where each member is an integral part of a deep and vibrant life together where love for each other reflects God's love for each of us. God's mission of reconciling all creation is centered on calling and gathering a people who will bear witness in their life together this work of God in Christ. In good time the intimacy of our lives together will ripple out from our altar forming personal examples of what a Christian really is.

Our faith is simple. Our prayer life is rich. Our songs honor Christ not "I". We discover meaning in our lives by knowing the season's of Christ life. His Passion is our passion.

We do our utmost to reconnect with that which is truly important. We harken back to a simpler, more rooted existence by promoting the blessings of quiet time, fellowship and sharing. We treasure the stability of place, family and enduring friendship. We see ourselves as caretakers of His creation. These are not radical ideas. They are Christian ones. To us hospitality, gracious liturgy, hymn singing, quiet prayer and works of mercy are ideals. We come together to do something of importance in our lives, to be thankful and to love each other as God loves each of us.
