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.

Success of the first Gideon meal served in our church since the beginning of COVID.

A much-needed surgery has been moved forward on the schedule.

Unexpected loss of a much-loved family member.

The integration of aging grandparents into the family’s home.

A terminal diagnosis due to an inoperatable brain tumor.

Greenbluff farmers whose livelihood is affected by a hotter than usual summer.

Firefighters battling the many fires in the western United States, and those whose health is threatened by the resulting smoke.

The families of victims in the recent apartment building collapse in Florida; also the first responders to that tragedy.

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