Evening Prayer – 20 November 2019

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

The day is over

Night is upon us

Circle us, Lord

Keep us safe from harm

Circle us, Lord

Give us sound sleep

Circle us, Lord

Give strength for tomorrow

Now as my eyelids grow heavy

I lift this humble prayer to you

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…

Evening Prayer – 19 November 2019

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

Time spent in fellowship with dear friends

Time spent with this handsome ram

Time spent listing to the music of wonderful friends

Time spent reading, sharing stories, and enjoying the company of friends who are family

Thank you Lord, for this day

Now as my eyelids grow heavy

I lift this humble prayer to you

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…

Evening Prayer – 18 November 2019

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

A time of rest and renewal

A time to Be Still

A time to slow down and recuperate

A time to enjoy your Creation, Lord

Fellowship and renewal

Hope and revitalization

For your gifts I thank you, Lord

Now as my eyelids grow heavy

I lift this humble prayer to you

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…

Evening Prayer – 17 November 2019

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

A wonderful Lord’s Day of worship

A time of fellowship, love, and laughter

An afternoon of snoozing and relaxing

A time of reading and reflection

An evening of music with a dear friend

So many blessings, Lord

Now as my eyelids grow heavy

I lift this humble prayer to you

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…

The Bible is Inspired — John Valters Paintner

Thank you for this wonderful reflection and insight, John ❤️

“To claim that the Bible is inspired by God is not to claim that it was dictated by God to humans who simply wrote down what they were told. To claim the Bible is inspired by God is to claim that humans were inspired, compelled, by their interactions with the divine presence or experience to write down their stories.”

Sermon – What is the Body of Christ? – 17 November 2019

I took this picture of St Francis of Assisi Anglican Church in February, 2018. It was a beautiful day and it was also a time for reflection and introspection. When Saint Francis was “called to his ministry” he distinctly heard God say, “Francis, rebuild my church.” He thought God was talking about the little ruined chapel where he would go to pray. Actually, God was talking about the Church in general and not a specific building.

First Reading – Isaiah 12

Second Reading – Luke 21:5-19
