From Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, and Stephen Cottrell, the
Archbishop of York:

God of peace and justice, we pray for the people of Ukraine today. We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons. We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow, that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them. We pray for those with power over war or peace, for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions. Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear, that you would hold and protect them. We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Amen.
May-June Book Club (Spiritual Practices)

Receiving Jesus: The Way of Love 
by Mariann Edgar Budde

Available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble

This small, intense and lovely book contains stories both from life and Christian tradition around the practices of the Way of Love: to turn, to learn, to pray and to worship, to bless , to go and to rest. She shares both personal and biblical stories that enlighten each practice. It is an invitational book , not a how-to book, that beckons us into a closer relationship with God, each other and our neighbor.
Join me as we explore the practices and how we live them out in our own lives as people following Christ.
Starting Wednesday May 11th at 7 pm and continuing through June until we are done. We will take it at our own pace. This is through ZOOM.

Please let me know you are interested. My email is glsteele7@gmail.com and my phone number is 651-338-2946 . If your faith community would like to do an in person group , I can arrange a one or two time get togethers for Saturdays to cover the book as well, just let me know.
Looking forward to sharing and learning and growing!!
