On Saturday,May 7, 2017, Father Paul Moore and Pastor Sarah Guck, drove to a small border town in Texas, where every year the oneness of God and humanity is celebrated in an unusual way. When he posted this picture on Facebook, Father Paul commented,
Just celebrated Holy Eucharist in the middle of the Rio Grande River at the Lajitas Voces de Ambos Lados, Voices from Both Sides Celebration. Had a wonderful and blessed time.
At the early church service back home in Silver City, he was asked about the water temperature of the river. He said it was brisk, a good contrast with the 85 or 90 degree F air. But it didn’t stop people from taking part!
The following Sunday, Father Paul’s sermon told quite a bit more about what happened at Lajitas.
