MESSAGE FROM THE WARDENS

Dear all,

As noted in our letter on March 31, Gareth continues to improve, gaining strength and being able to sit outside for brief periods in the sunshine-when we've had sunshine this week. He hopes to resume clerical duties soon and greatly appreciates all the parish has done for him and the family during their illness and in recovery. Continue to keep them all in your prayers. 
 
Faithfully,
 
Jody and Rose

A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Fran Bean recently told the Wardens that it has been an incredible blessing to have so many loving people looking out for them-dropping off groceries and prepared meals, running errands, and just taking the time to check-in. "We are enfolded in a community of love, and we are very grateful," she said.
 
Throughout this time, she has found that the spiritually important thing is to stay present and have faith that this will shift in time. Following is a prayer that Fran found particularly meaningful, and that she wanted to share with all of you: 
 
Lord, You have always given
bread for the coming day;
and though I am poor,
today I believe.
 
Lord, You have always given
strength for the coming days;
and though I am weak,
today I believe.

Lord, You have always given
peace for the coming day;
and though of anxious heart,
today I believe.

Lord, You have always kept me
safe in trials;
and now, tired as I am,
today I believe.

Lord, You have always marked
the road for the coming day;
and though it may be hidden,
today I believe.

Lord, You have always lightened
the darkness of mine;
and though the night is here,
today I believe.

Lord, You have always spoken
when the time was ripe;
and though you be silent now,
today I believe.
