Almighty God, giver of every good gift: Look graciously on Grace Church, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a rector for this parish, that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
There are many sites, big and small, that allow you to donate in aid of those suffering in the war in Ukraine. Episcopal Relief and Development is always a solid way to give to any kind of need, as it works through congregations and organizations who are already "on the ground" in whichever area is affected. So, if you're looking for a way to help, in whatever way these wise people think is the current best way, this is a good way.
