Deacons and their work

In yesterday's worship service at Our Savior we had the pleasure of the company of several deacons and persons who are studying to become deacons in the Episcopal Church. These persons will represent the church to the world and the world to the church. They are the ones who will bring to our attention those whom society often overlooks.

Almighty and most merciful God, we remember before you all poor and neglected persons whom it would be easy for us to forget: the homeless and the destitute, the old and the sick, and all who have none to care for them. Help us to heal those who are broken in body or spirit, and to turn their sorrow into joy. Grant this, Father, for the love of your Son, who for our sake became poor, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. The Book of Common Prayer, 826.

In peace,

The Rev. Linda McCloud
The Episcopal Church of Our Savior at Honey Creek
