Pews News Weekly
Wasn't it lovely to have Deacon Joe visit this past week? I am tremendously grateful for his visit and his willingness to preach the word this past week. I knew that this month would be exhausting, but I wasn't counting on getting sick in the middle of it. Thank you all for your prayers.
This coming Saturday is the men's and women's Bible study. We meet once a month at 9 am. Not only is it a great time of fellowship, I think we're learning a lot. The men are studying the "Essential 100 Passages, " and the women are continuing through the book of Ruth. I would encourage everyone who can attend.
Did you know?
If you miss Sunday, you can still read the sermon from the previous week on the website: https://www.allsaintsprescott.org/sermons
St. Paul exhorts us to "not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." We often forget how important prayer is, finding excuses not to pray "oh, I need to brush my teeth," "just one more episode of my show," "but, I'm so tired." We have such a warm welcome. We are invited to speak to the king of kings, not only as distant servants but as adopted and beloved children.
My challenge this week would be that we would become a parish that is known for praying. Make a habit of praying the offices of Morning and Evening prayer, but also pray throughout the day. Talk to the Lord, giving thanks for your joys, and crying out in your frustrations.
Please Pray for:
- Deacons Bill Baker and Chris Smith who, Lord willing, will be ordained to the priesthood a week from Saturday, October 28.
- Your church, all the members, that we would be Christ's light in the world.
- Your priest that I would preach the word of God faithfully and live a life following after Christ's example.
- Your bishops that they would be faithful to the word of God, teaching the true faith in all they do.
- Our Diocese that our parishes and missions would be places of the hope we find and know in Christ.
Thank you all for all you do, I look forward to seeing all of you on Sunday.
