We're welcoming a very special guest for Holy Week this year: Rev. Dr. Mark Davison. Mark is a dear friend of many of us at Epiclesis and member of the Ancient-Future Faith Network. He and pastor Chris began talking some time ago about how Mark might share some of his passion for the Lord's Table with Epiclesis and thought that Holy Week would be the perfect time! Mark (pictured at right with wife Lyn) is an evangelical priest with the Anglican Church in North America and lives in Brentwood Bay near Victoria B.C. Mark will also take some time for a private spiritual retreat in Lake Tahoe while visiting with us.
Mark will both teach and lead at the Lord's Table on Palm Sunday; lead an informal gathering and discussion at Pastor Chris' house on Wednesday night during Holy Week (details in the online calendar) on the powerful way that Scripture shapes worship; participate with Pastor Chris in our Maundy Thursday and all-new Holy Saturday (Easter Vigil) services, then lead again at Table on Easter day.
