|St. Elisabeth's & Christ the King Episcopal Church||
St. Elisabeth's & Christ the King is a small, yet friendly and family oriented congregation in the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth. We are a member congregation of The Episcopal Church, governed by The General Convention and under the care of our Presiding Bishop, The Most Rev. Michael Bruce Curry. We are directed by The Rt. Rev. Scott Mayer, Provisional Bishop of Fort Worth and pastored by The Rev. Sandra Michels, priest-in-charge. We are located very near the Joint Reserve Base off of River Oaks Boulevard (Highway 183) on the west side of Fort Worth. Parking is around in back of the church. Come visit us; we'd love to see you!

Listen again to the words of our epistle lesson from The Letter of James as paraphrased by Eugene Peterson in The Message:
“A bit in the mouth of a horse controls the whole horse. A small rudder on a huge ship in the hands of a skilled captain sets a course in the face of the strongest winds. A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything – or destroy it!
“It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire. A careless or wrongly placed word out of your mouth can do that. By our speech we can ruin the world, turn harmony to chaos, throw mud on a reputation, send the whole world up in smoke…”
God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say "thank you?"
William A. Ward
“When the solution is simple, God is answering.”
“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.”

Daily Readings, Year A
The Revised Common Lectionary Daily Readings are now available online at DailyLectio.net. This three year cycle of daily scripture readings follows and augments the RCL Sunday lections. The readings for Thursday through Saturday prepare for the Sunday lessons, while the Monday through Wednesday readings reflect on the Sunday lessons. (To be clear: these are not the Daily Office readings from the Book of Common Prayer.)
About dailyLectio.net dailyLectio.net is a resource designed to help you read the Bible with the church. Each day, it provides in one place the Daily Readings of the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL). The RCL has been adopted by numerous church bodies throughout the world as the schedule of biblical passages assigned to be read in their weekly Sunday worship.
The Daily Readings both prepare for and reflect back upon the themes found in these Sunday passages. Using dailyLectio.net will enhance your worship experience by highlighting the connection between Sunday’s texts and other texts with similar themes throughout the Bible. Regular use of dailyLectio.net can also deepen the connection between Sunday worship and the rest of your daily life. Using dailyLectio.net puts you in touch with the cycles of stories and celebrations that carry us through the church’s year.
