In love

A gift of the Christian church is that it is rich with rituals and traditions of joy, grief, and hope, as communities of faith come together to support one another, both in celebration and in grieving.

Socks4Shanks day

A Prayer in a time of trouble...
God of wind and water, stillness and storm,
your Spirit sweeps over the surface of the sea. Give us faith to seek you in times of trouble.

Reach out your hand to us when we are sinking so that we may believe and worship you; through Jesus Christ, Sovereign and Savior. 
(based on Matthew 14:22-33)
