This week's community joys and concerns - Feb. 3, 2023


Among the joys in our community and beyond,

  • We pray for the Center for Spirituality and the Arts, for our Artists in Residence as they prepare to share their gifts for the coming Lenten season and in all the ways they bless the world and serve our community.


Among our congregational community Concerns, we lift to God in prayer:

  • Bill Duncan, a member of Laura Richholt's family who suffered a major heart attack last week. Bill's family has since made the difficult decision to remove him from life support. We pray for God's unmistakable comfort to embrace Bill, Laura, and their entire family in these tender yet sacred hours and days to come.

  • Kim King, sister-in-law of Sandy King who was recently diagnosed with uterine cancer. She will undergo surgery February 6th.

We continue praying for:

  • Mark Housman, who has progressed in his recovery after heart surgery on 1/25 and continues healing at in a physical rehabilitation facility.

  • Charlene Housman

  • Bear, Mel Peabody's partner

  • Rachel Morford

  • September Peterson

  • And for our homebound friends, Helen Bosley, Harry and Margaret Lobberegt, Jane Nelson, Marylu and Joseph Mills and Jim and Kay Thompson and Lenora Cook.

Among our local and global community concerns:

  • For the Village at 6th and Orchard

  • For our partners in ministry, the Low Income Housing Institute, and the work our congregational leaders continue to provide alongside Pastor Doug in discerning and developing a plan to build affordable housing on the corner of 6th and Orchard.
