St Anne's is a warm and welcoming community where questions are encouraged and everyone has a place at God’s table.
Our gatherings are filled with music, prayer, and the stories of our faith, with the Eucharist (“thanksgiving”) at the heart of our life together. Our congregation is a diverse bunch from Highfields and beyond, our worldviews vary and we respect our differing approaches to life and faith.
No matter who you are or where you are on your journey of life or faith, you are welcome at St Anne’s.
This week @ St Anne’s
The office will be open on Wednesday this week from 9am.
THE OTHER SERENITY PRAYER
God grant me the serenity
to accept the people I cannot change
the courage to change the one I can
and the wisdom to know it’s me.
I go down to the edge of the sea.
How everything shines in the morning light!
The cusp of the whelk,
the broken cupboard of the clam,
the opened, blue mussels,
moon snails, pale pink and barnacle scarred—
and nothing at all whole or shut, but tattered, split,
dropped by the gulls onto the gray rocks and all the moisture gone.
It's like a schoolhouse
of little words,
thousands of words.
First you figure out what each one means by itself,
the jingle, the periwinkle, the scallop
full of moonlight.
Then you begin, slowly, to read the whole story.
