Among our Joys:
We celebrate with Corrine Bahrke and her whole family on the birth of her great-great granddaughter, Marliah Monroe Armstrong, born November 8th at 4lbs and 14oz at 3:25 am.
Among our new concerns this week:
Katy Mundy had a planned surgery this past Tuesday and returned home Friday. Things went according to plan, but it will take 4-6 weeks to heal. We are grateful for those who have volunteered to cover our children’s spaces in the meantime and we look forward to her return.
Mary Morford’s daughter, Rachel, passed away this past Wednesday after a long illness. Her illness lingered too long and her death came too young. We pray that all in her family find peace and comfort in this time.
Vicky Carlson’s son-in-law’s mother dislocated her ankle and broke her fibula while traveling. Surgery was needed. She is in a safe place, but we pray for healing and a safe return home.
Among our concerns, we pray for:
Sue Simpson she await medical test results
Mel Peabody, her partner, Bear and their family
Corrine Bahrke's friend, Loralie
Martha Redford's friends, Margo and Teresa
For all our homebound friends, for Harry and Margaret Lobberegt, Helen Bosley, Marylu and Joseph Mills and Jane Nelson.
Among our local and global community,
· Those in harm's way due to war and the warring ways of those with power, we pray for those in Gaza and all whose lives are at risk in the midst of the Israel-Hamas conflict, and for the many whose lives have been cut short at the hands of a collective of nations' so-called interests, including the United States. We pray for a ceasefire.
· We continue to pray for those in Ukraine, Afghanistan, and many other places around the world in the midst of conflict and strife.
· We lift up the village on 6th and Orchard, remembering too those of our neighbors who remain especially vulnerable in this season. We pray for the fervor to continue doing all we can to care for the least among us in tangible, faith-filled ways.
· We lift up our Global Ministries partners this week in Eswatini.
