Sunday, September 4 ~ Pentecost 13

Loving God, please help us to know your presence.  Sing your joy in us; sing your comfort in us.  Ring out your peace, your love, your mercy and justice in us.  May your voice resonate through our bodies, our spirits, and our lives.  Birth in us life, new life, abundant life, and equip us to share that life and love with the world you so love.  Amen.

Chelsea Masterman, Grace U.C., Edmonton, Alta.

The Essex Food Bank needs cereal and jam for the families they support.  These items are in short supply.  We continue to support both the Essex Food Bank and the Salvation Army Food Bank. These are challenging times for food banks and both groups are very appreciative of our support.



Our Daily Bread for September, October and November is available in the Narthex.
