Welcome, so glad you're here! Welcoming autumn with lots of great reading!
Prayer for today: Loving God, We thank you for this day, for all that will transpire as we move through the world, as news comes to us, as we navigate these hours, this minutes, this time. We want to be mindful and aware, to be light. Thank you for all the blessings that come our way, for all good gifts we know come from you. Amen.
