This week's community joys & concerns from January 28, 2024

Updated: Feb 1


Joys

  • Lent is underway! Book study - sign up today.


Among our concerns we add:

  • Dan Jablonski, recovering after a medical incident this week, but is now at home being cared for by his partner, Gordon

  • Misty Hahn-Zwosta, friend of Sue Simpson who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer

  • Marc Master, who continues his recovery at a transitional care facility in Puyallup


We continue to pray for:

  • Dan Leadbetter, a newer member of our community who has asked for our prayers as he deals with a health concern

  • Larry Levy

  • Corrine Bahrke's friend, Loralie

  • Martha Redford's friends, Margo and Teresa

  • For all our homebound friends, including Harry and Margaret Lobberegt, Helen Bosley, Marylu and Joseph Mills and Jane Nelson.


Among our local and global community,

  • Those in harm's way in Gaza and the surrounding region in the midst of genocide; that humanitarian aid and rebuilding begin; that no displacement occurs;

  • Those in Ukraine, Afghanistan, Yemen, and many other places around the world in the midst of conflict and strife

  • We lift up the village on 6th and Orchard, remembering all of our neighbors who remain especially vulnerable in this season, as arctic air spreads across the whole United States.

  • We pray for the fervor to continue doing all we can to care for the least among us in tangible, faith-filled ways

  • As tensions build between state and US forces along the US-Mexico border in Texas, we pray for the dignity of those fleeing violence and the reminder of Jesus who himself was born a refugee to calls us to love our neighbors as ourselves. We pray for peace, for the breaking down of barriers, for the melting of weapons, and for the building of true community among all the peoples of the world.

  • We lift up our Global Ministries partners in Hungary
