Lord, Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd of the Sheep, help your people to resist feelings of isolation, worthlessness, despair, pride, and complacency, things which grow out of the valley of death. Open for us a space to know the power of the resurrection, space to be led in the green pastures, beside the still waters, and to dwell in the blessedness of your house. Give us what we truly need. Lead us, guide us, and help us in the midst of things we cannot understand to believe and trust in the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen
Dear Friends, There are several learning opportunities coming up in week ahead that I wanted keep on your radar. - "Aslan on the Move" : This Sunday (downstairs in Jerusalem Room) at 9:30 AM we gather together for a presentation / discussion based on Christian themes found in the C.S. Lewis classic, "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." This gathering will continue through November 24. Anyone from high school students to senior citizens are welcome to attend. Join us and be enriched in faith. - "Lunch Bunch Bible Study" - We gather each Thursday at noontime in St. Andrew's Hall to look a little deeper at the assigned bible texts that will be proclaimed the upcoming Sunday. We provide coffee and printed out texts. You are free to bring Bibles and a bagged lunch if you wish. People who rarely take part in Bible Study have become a part of this group and have found it very helpful in their walk of faith.
