Clergy Join Protest at Capital

Event Date: 
February 22, 2011 (All day)

 

Reverends Jerry Hancock, Eldonna Hazen and Curt Anderson at the Capitol on Tuesday, 2/22/2011. They were part of a group of 60-some clergy from various religious traditions who participated in a faith-rally against the budget repair bill on the steps of Grace Episcopal Church, and then marched across the street and into the Capitol, all chanting "This is what religion should look like." After brief prayers in the middle of the rotunda, they went outside the Assembly chambers for prayers, also.

Prayer for Daily Use

Event Date: 
February 20, 2011 (All day)

Lord, make us instruments of your peace. Where there is hatred, let us sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is discord, union; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy. Grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.

Prayer for Daily Use

Event Date: 
February 13, 2011 (All day)

Gracious and merciful God, you have given me wonderful gifts – gifts of intelligence, of training, of friends and family. You have blessed me beyond my imagining.

Sometimes, however, I use your blessings only for myself, rather than also using them to help others.

I pray that you would make me more aware of the needs of others – people across the living room, across the street, across the state. And as I become aware of their needs, help me find ways to share your blessings with them.

There is a congregational meeting this Sunday following worship. The main purpose of the meeting is to discuss and approve a budget for the church for 2011. Copies of the 2010 budget and expenses and the proposed 2011 budget have been available in the back of the sanctuary the last two Sundays; and last week’s Tower contained a one-page insert with a written, narrative budget summary and a very short (one side of one page) summary of the 2010 budget and expenditures and the proposed 2011 budget.
