From our friends at Faith Journeys:
Fr. Jim's Corner --

Some extra information for those interested in the content of Fr. Jim's sermon this past week (March 14th, 2021).
Last week's sermon addressed "restorative justice," and Walter Wink's explanation of "Jesus' Third Way." If you would like to read more about these topics and see the list of 18 actions to take in the face of violence, as described by Walter Wink, please click here. It's a very interesting, and informative read!

A Prayer For the Conservation
of Natural Resources

Almighty God, in giving us dominion over things on earth, you made us fellow workers in your creation: Give us wisdom and reverence so to use the resources of nature, that no one may suffer from our abuse of them, and that generations yet to come may continue to praise you for your bounty; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. BCP p. 827
