Almighty God, you have so linked our lives one with another that all we do affects all other lives.
So guide us in the work we do, that we may do it not for self alone, but for the common good.

This Is How It Always Is, by Laurie Frankel

Based on the author’s own personal knowledge, this is a story about a family with a transgender child, and “the love that binds them all.” It is bold, honest and sensitive – a book that gives the reader a wide, thoughtful perspective, in a way you might never expect.

Van Gogh in America
Save the Date: Wednesday, November 9

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 9 for a bus trip to the DIA to see the Exhibit Van Gogh in America which will start at 1:00. Details to follow!

 

This Exhibit marks the 100th anniversary of the DIA’s purchase of Van Gogh’s 1887 Self-Portrait. The DIA was the first public museum in America to purchase one of his works.

And let us remember those for who we are responsible and to whom we are accountable in what we do today: those who have died, and their families and friends who loved them; those who suffer and those in any kind of trouble or distress.

May we show all whom we meet the thoughtfulness., tolerance and kindness of Jesus. 

 

Lord, hear us.

Lord, graciously hear us.

 

Lord, hear our prayers, and if today we might be the means by which you answer the prayer of others, then may you find us neither deaf nor defiant, but keen to fulfill your purpose, for Jesus’ sake.

 

Amen.

A word of thanks

Jesus, Teach Me 

words, Bert Stratton ~ music, Vicki Tucker Courtney

Jesus, teach me what I need to know.
Guide and lead me where I need to go.
In everything I say and do, teach me how to love like You.
Shine Your heavenly light. Touch me and open my eyes.
As I go through the day, Lord, let me follow Your way.
Lord, the sound of Your voice fills me with comfort and joy.
Now I must start listening with all of my heart.

Since our founding we have supported activities at home and abroad
with monetary gifts and with the personal involvement of our parishioners.
In this way we share the light of Christ.
