March 1 at 7 p.m., Sanctuary

James Derkits and Billy Tweedie are returning to St. Mark's to share a musical reflection (AKA concert). The concert, "Love One Another" is a collection of songs about the Incarnation, Teachings, and Passion of Christ, perfect for Lenten devotion. James will be playing guitar, and mandolin as well as singing. Billy will be on banjo, guitar, and vocals. You will have the chance to purchase a CD from James, or get it online starting Ash Wednesday.

James Derkits

James lives in Port Aransas with his wife, Laura, and son Eli (9). He just released his second album, "Love One Another: The Incarnation, Teachings, Passion, and Resurrection of Christ". He is the rector of Trinity by the Sea in Port Aransas. 

Billy Tweedie

Billy is married with two children and serves as a priest to Episcopal Church of the Resurrection. He found the banjo in college and has been picking ever since. He loves the sound of the banjo and all the jokes that come with it.

Christian Meditation: Wednesdays 5:50 to 6:30 p.m., Margaret's Parlor

Meditation is an ancient form of prayer. Its aim is to bring the distracted mind to silence and stillness and to rest in the presence of God. Even in our modern busy lives this is possible. 

Learn more with the St. Mark's Christian group beginning the week after Ash Wednesday. Come for your own experience along with an intro series of instruction and discussion.

Optional contact: Linda Schmalstieg 832.922.1650 and leave voice message for call back.
