The Lectionary Gospel lesson has Jesus preaching in the Synagogue in Capernaum when he is suddenly interrupted by a man with an unclean spirit.

Wedding Destination - Hilton Head Island and the surrounding Carolina Low Country has become a most desirable site for folks to come from far and wide to solemnize their marriages. South Carolina law allows a variety of officials (judges, notaries, etc.) to officiate at such ceremonies, but many couples ask specifically if a minister might be available. Since pastors actively serving churches are often reluctant to take on additional responsibilities that do not involve members of their own congregations, that means the pool of available clergy is somewhat limited. Enter David. Officiating at such affairs has become a most enjoyable form of ministry now that we have relocated to the island permanently. For details about the process, click here or on the "Weddings" button at left and we will be happy to assist.
