Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
We had a rock and roll inspired discussion during our Zoom Coffee Hour, following Father Jay’s sermon on January 31st.
We acknowledged that many of the words found in Marvin Gaye’s song “What’s Goin’ On” are still relevant some 50 years later!
We also discussed how sometimes blessings don’t always happen in the way that we would want them to but that we must trust that God has a plan for each of us.
I closed my recorded reflection with the following prayer of Self-Dedication from our Book of Common Prayer:
Almighty and eternal God, so draw our hearts to thee, so guide our minds, so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we may be wholly thine, utterly dedicated unto thee; and then us, we pray thee, as thou wilt, and always to thyglory and welfare of thy people; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.BCP page 832-833
Peace and love,
Listen to Deacon Lauren’s reflection.
