A Season of Prayer
The Serenity Prayer in Full

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change …
The courage to change the things I can …
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace …

Taking this sinful world as Jesus did:
As it is, not as I would have it …

Trusting that you will make all things right,
If I surrender to your will …

So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
and supremely happy with you forever in the ne xt.

Lazy Days of Summer       

With this Memorial Day Weekend, we mark the "official" beginning of summer. We gear down to hopefully a slower pace as the heat and humidity become the norm. However, our Sunday worship continues, and we need your help. The sign-up sheets for liturgist, ushers, hospitality and flowers are relatively bare. Please take a minute to look at the sheets and see where you can help with the ministry of Highland Presbyterian this summer. We promise it will be cooler inside than outside.
This week in PCUSA Mission:
