As this season continues, it is vital for us to know we are not alone. Several of our members have offered to help with errand, rides to doctors appointments, grocery stores, etc. If you need groceries, errands done or a ride, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
For those in need of a prayer,
This is a prayer from one of my favorite authors, Nadia Bolz-Weber:
God who made us all,
Our healers are exhausted, God. Give rest to those who care for the sick.
Our children are bored, God. Grant extra creativity to their caregivers.
Our friends are lonely, God. Help us to reach out.
Our pastors are doing the best they can, God. Help them to know it is enough.
Our workers are jobless, God. Grant us the collective will to take care of them.
Our fellow parents are losing their minds, God. Bring unexpected play and joy and dance parties to all in need.
Our grocery workers are absorbing everyones’s anxiety, God. Protect them from us.
Our elderly are even more isolated God. Comfort them.
We haven’t done this before and we are scared, God.
I don’t even know what else to pray for.
May God be with you,
