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.

Gratitude for seeing many faces and hearing many voices in the Meeting House again.

Those facing mid-life choices regarding career and education.

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

Those whose illnesses will likely lead to their death.

Lorna’s loss of her sister-in-law and her dad moving to a nursing home.

Deborah’s sister-in-law Lauralea, newly widowed.

Households disrupted by sickness of family members.

Encouragement and aid for those suffering disproportionately due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

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