As you read this, I am taking time away for sabbath and renewal. Thank you to our staff, and to each of you for all your blessings and support; I can't wait to be back with you next Sunday!

We pray for our homebound friends, Helen Bosley, Harry and Margaret Lobberegt, Jane Nelson, Marylu and Joseph Mills and Jim and Kay Thompson.
We give God thanks for the life of Elaine Jonson and lift up all her friends and loved ones grieving her death on September 4th.
Among our local and global community concerns:
We pray for those in harm's way in Washington and the surrounding region due to wildfires. Please pray for all of life as we grapple with the challenges set before because of human-caused climate change.
We pray for all who are living currently at the village on 6th and Orchard; pray for peace in the midst of the many circumstances in which those experiencing houselessness endure. We also pray for a renewed sense of urgency in our city, neighborhood, and congregation in our work to secure housing as a right for all human beings.
This week, we lift up our Global Ministries partners in Puerto Rico.
