O God, in the course of this busy life, give us times of refreshment and peace; and grant that we may so use our leisure to
rebuild our bodies and renew our minds, that our spirits may be opened to the goodness of your creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Have a blessed weekend...some time off, go outside if you can and take a deep breath or two, walk on some grass barefoot or discover again what sand between your toes might feel like. Admire God’s glory in the flowers around you. Have a
conversation with your dog or cat.
This being said, we have much to do as the fall is here and there is planning on all fronts to be done. Planning of a 2013 budget, the work collecting information we will need for the Diocesan Grant Proposal that will support us in another year’s ministry. Later, in the Fall, we will be praying about how we can financially support the ministries that God has called us to here at Grace.
As I may have said (all the way back in July) we will have some serious times, many joyful times and some hard work ahead. And I know that in Christ’s name and with the support and presence of the Holy Spirit we will prosper and grow.
We are truly blessed,
