Rev. Moon’s message for October 16, 2022

Dear Friends,

We apologize for the last two Sundays: there were some technical challenges, and we could not provide online worship services to you. We are working on the issues. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

During this busy season, I would like to share a prayer by St. Francis de Sales:

“St. Francis de Sales” (18th century) by Spanish painter Francisco Bayeu y Subías (1734–1795); from the collection of the Museo del Prado; taken from the Wikimedia Commons.

“Do not look forward in fear to the changes of life; rather look to them with full hope that as they arise, God, whose very own you are, will lead you safely through all things; and when you cannot stand it you will be carried in God’s very own arms. Do not fear what may happen tomorrow; the same everlasting God who cares for you today will take care of you then and every day. God will either shield you from suffering or will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.  Amen.”

St. Francis de Sales

On Wednesday, October 26, we hold our monthly quiet prayer service at 7:30 PM. It is an opportunity to pause ourselves from running and offer ourselves to God in silent prayer. No matter how busy our life becomes, may we not lose ourselves. Please, join our prayers.

—Rev. Chuck Moon
