Circle of Prayer
Throughout the month of January we pray for our wardens and vestry members. We pray for the upcoming meeting at the end of the month, that we would continue to be guided by the Holy Spirit as we work for the building up of the church in our time and place.
We pray for: Alice and Dan Entwhistle and for Samuel Ezeogwum and their families.
As the season of Epiphany unfolds, here is a thought about the miracle of everyday life by Wendell Berry:
“The miraculous is not extraordinary, but the common mode of existence. It is our daily bread. Whoever really has considered the lilies of the field or the birds of the air, and pondered the improbability of their existence in this warm world within the cold and empty stellar distances, will hardly balk at the turning of water into wine—which was, after all, a very small miracle. We forget the greater and still continuing miracle by which water (with soil and sunlight) is turned into grapes.”
