This week's community joys & concerns from May 19, 2024

Among our Joys:

  • It is Pentecost! In the tradition and beliefs of our forebears in the church, life begins at first breath. Before first breath, the spirit of life, the breath of being, had not entered the body. According to Acts, it was on the Pentecost when the Disciples as one body took their first breath, the Holy Spirit filling the room with a gust of wind, the Holy Spirit which shows us that the gospel can be heard in all languages, can be found in all peoples. Today we celebrate that the good news of redemption and reconciliation can be articulated in every language. We celebrate that all can hear it in their native tongue, in their community. .

Among our concerns:

  • We hold in our prayers Laura Cohthril

  • Mel Peabody’s mother

  • Pat McDaniel

  • Karen Murray's friend Nancy

  • Mary Hans-Zwosta, a friend of Sue Simpson

  • Danny Jablonski, and his spouse, Gordon

  • Marc Master

  • Alex Tapia

  • Corrine Bahrke's friend, Loralie

  • Martha Redford's friends, Margo and Teresa

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

Among our local and global community,

  • We pray for peace, for those under occupation, for those who fall victim to tyrannical rule, for all building peace in a world obsessed with war. We pray for Gaza, the West Bank, Ukraine, Israel, Iran, and anywhere God’s peace is trampled in the human quest for might.

  • We lift up the village on 6th and Orchard.

  • We lift up our Global Ministries partners in Venezuela..

If you'd like to share a prayer joy or concern, please contact Pastor Doug at or by calling the church office. Please indicate whether your prayer is to be shared publicly, or if you'd like it to be kept private.
