Prayer Requests

This just in:

There are so many things going on today, and so many people involved... it's hard to single out any one thing.

But I will ask this: prayers for the ongoing ministry of the church I serve, and for its wonderful people, and for those who will soon be making decisions that will affect us all.

Today a body meets that will decide, pretty much, whether I am able to continue as pastor here.

While they are meeting I will be singing and dancing and otherwise cavorting onstage in a dress rehearsal for a play that will open Thursday night.

And while all this is going on, my dad is trying to figure out what he wants, what he can and cannot do, what he will and will not do, and how his children figure into all of it.

While you're on your knees, you might throw in a petition on behalf of my blood pressure.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Praying. Absolutely. Standing, with arms uplifted and eyes on the beauty of Creation...kneeling and breathing deeply while my hands plant another seedling...praying in the midst of my own busy-ness for you in the midst of yours.

Keep singing, like Miriam! Keep dancing, like David! Keep cavorting, like all holy-foolish vessels for the humour(s) of God!

Sorry to come in late. The vote has come and gone so now I pray that you and your congregation have the strength to face your future, whatever it may be.

Prayers for all, blood pressure included.

Processing Counselor said...

You've got mine and good thought all around. As my mother would have said It would be a "sin and a shame" to not allow you to continue.

another late prayer.

Erp said...

I hope everything went ok.

Julie said...

All my prayers are with you…and I know God is with you on this journey so do not fear. I apologize for this late response, but there was something wrong with my intranet connection. And wow a lot of things have changed since I was last on your blog. Congratulations on your coming out I know you will do powerful things in the Lord.
