Above: Melchizedek in the Ordination Window of Saint Thomas Church. He is the first priest mentioned in the Bible (Genesis 14). He shows up again in Psalm 110 (“thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek”) and again and again in Hebrews in reference to Christ, our high priest.

Evening Prayer
Psalms: 6, 7 & 8
Lesson: Deuteronomy 5:1-22

‚ñ∫The lesson at Evening Prayer contains the Decalogue, commonly known as “the ten commandments.” How should we understand the ten commandments in this time of living under the Gospel? These sermons from the Rector might help:
