April 24, 2022 Weekly Messenger

They cut me down and I leapt up high; I am the life that’ll never, never die;

I’ll live in you if you’ll live in me; I am the Lord of the Dance, said he.

Dance, then, wherever you may be; I am the Lord of the Dance, said he,

And I’ll lead you all, wherever you may be, and I’ll lead you all in the Dance, said he.

Please hold these beloved people and situations in your daily prayers –

All those in Ukraine, Russia, Europe, Africa, Asia, the world – living in war and violence…

We continue our prayers for all those grieving deaths of loved ones… including the Espling family grieving the death of Everett’s brother Justin on Thursday, April 14…

We continue prayers of compassion, healing, and hope for those in need… Fran… Fran’s grandson Jake… Nick’s sister Susan… Patti & Kathy’s Aunt Helen… Vicky’s brother Royce… Steve & Myrna… Austin’s cousin Danny… Tamara & Andrew… Renata and the women she cares for… Betty J… Betty’s step-daughter Mollie… Kenny and Marcia… Annie & Reed… Carolyn & Michael… Eleanor’s step-daughter Holly … Tom & Judy’s son Andrew and his family… Danny and Clementine… Cynthia & Nancy… all caregivers… all struggling with mental health issues… all individuals and families experiencing addictions…
