Your Daughters Will Prophesy…

At the very first Pentecost, St. Peter stood before the crowd gathered in Jerusalem, and addressed them with these words from the prophet Joel:

“In the last days it will be, God declares,
that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh,
    and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy” (Acts 2.17).

This Pentecost season, we will to acknowledge this truth, spoken at the very first Pentecost, by honoring the voices of women in our pulpit. Over these ten weeks, we will feature ten women from our congregation who have been called as teachers and preachers of God’s word.

Our preacher for this Sunday is Kimberly Malone. Kimberly has been a parishioner at All Angels Church for the last three years and serves as one of the house church leaders. She is a certified Spiritual Director, and has a MA in Theology and a MA in Intercultural Studies from Fuller Seminary.

During the course of her professional and volunteer experience she has worked in the fields of community development, addiction, homelessness, education, volunteer support, and incarceration. She is currently teaching an undergraduate course on spiritual formation at Sing Sing Prison. 

Kimberly loves cooking, swimming, flying trapeze, and has a goal to be one of the best versions of herself at 80 years old. She lives in Mahwah, NJ with her husband and two stepsons.


We haveconsolidated all our adult education and prayer services into one hour on Wednesday evenings. Over the summer, two of our priests–John Schmidt and Jimmy Lawrence–have introduced a new series of videos called “Priests on Zoom Getting Coffee.” Each video includes a mixture of theology, personal stories, resources of going deeper in prayer and most importantly: coffee. You can watch last week’s episode here. Next week, John and Jimmy will be talking about intercessory prayer.

Both the prayer service and the study will take place on Zoom. Please RSVP to YJ@allangelschurch.com to participate. Hope you can join us!


Praying During Social Isolation

Session 4: “Intercessory Prayer”

Can we really ask God for anything in prayer? What about praying for a sick friend or family member—will God hear that prayer? What’s happening when we hold up others in prayer before God? What about when a nation is in turmoil: how do we intercede on behalf of those experiencing injustice? Are those prayers uttered only with our mouths, or can they be shown with our bodies and actions? Come learn what intercessory prayer looks like as The Rev. Dr. Courtney Bryant helps us learn how to pray for our country, and what it means to stand in the gap between the world and God.

Behold, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming.
Do you not see it? Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness and 
streams in the desert.
” 

-ISAIAH 43.19-
