Holding in the Light

During Meeting for Worship, many share joys about changes in their lives, new opportunities, new jobs, new ministries, unexpected blessings; others share concerns.  You may wish to carry these joys and concerns in your heart and remember them in your prayers.

The finalization of Mila Rose’s adoption into the Maroni family.

Recent successful surgeries.

The successful launch of the “See the Need” project.

 Our Quaker community, now engaged in creating a new mission statement that will unite us and guide us well in coming years.

Those incarcerated who want to change the direction of their lives when released.

Those facing mid-life choices regarding career and education.

 Older family members who can no longer manage alone but don’t want to move.

Those demoralized by the ongoing price of dealing with the COVID pandemic.

The many deaths and grieving families in India as the pandemic outruns the supplies needed to care for its victims.

Hope that our country may begin to address the systematic racism of our economic and criminal justice systems.
