Dear Grace Church Members and Friends,
Yesterday, Bishop Goff announced that our time of NOT gathering for in person public worship services will extend thru Holy Week and Easter. Please take a moment to read her letter here:
Goff Message on Holy Week and Easter
This is yet another disappointment but a necessary one. We will take the walk together thru this Holy time and Be The Church but it will look differently. We will stay in contact as we compile new opportunities and resources to experience Easter in your home.
Give me strength to live another day;
Let me not turn coward before its difficulties or prove recreant to its duties;
Let me not lose faith in other people;
Keep me sweet and sound of heart, in spite of ingratitude, treachery, or meanness;
Preserve me from minding little stings or giving them;
Help me to keep my heart clean, and to live so honestly and fearlessly that no outward failure can dishearten me or take away the joy of conscious integrity;
Open wide the eyes of my soul that I may see good in all things;
Grant me this day some new vision of thy truth;
Inspire me with the spirit of joy and gladness;
and make me the cup of strength to suffering souls;
in the name of the strong Deliverer, our only Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
(Forward Movement Daily Prayer for March 29, 2020)
