For Thursday, October 20, 2016
From Fr. Mark
1) Praying for Justice — Last Sunday I invited all of us to spend ten minutes each day praying for justice in our lives, in our communities, and/or in our world. Nothing more complicated than that — just praying for justice, however you imagine it. I have been doing this and have been moved by the experience. I hope you have been as well.
2) Speaking of prayer, our friends in the Bahai community would be gathering here at St. Francis on November 1st at 7:00PM for a prayer vigil to encourage world unity, national unity and community building, and we are invited to join with them. Please join me here for some ecumenical prayer that evening.
3) Also, on Thursday of that week (Nov 3rd) at 7:15 PM we will host an informational meeting of local interested parties around the issue of human trafficking, which is coming to light as a real issue in our state and even out here in the Panhandle. Anyone who would like to be a part of this group is welcome to attend.
4) A sincere thanks to everyone who has shared in our Ministry Minutes as part of our 2017 stewardship program. If you have not already done so, will you remember to prayerfully consider and submit your pledge by Nov 20th? You can bring your pledge card in and drop it off, place it in the plate on Sunday, or send it by mail. Thanks for your continued support of this parish!
