LITURGY OF THE ORDINARY:
SACRED PRACTICES IN EVERYDAY LIFE by Tish Harrison Warren
This book is a gentle invitation to discover connections between our most ordinary activities and Christian liturgy and sacrament, seeing all of life imbued with holy possibilities. We recommend that you read slowly, in small sips. Books are available for $12 beginning today, or you could order individually online or through Kindle. At the event, we’ll share a leisurely brunch and talk about what we’ve discovered in our reading. Sign up sheet on the women’s bulletin board. Watch for more information about potluck brunch food plans.
We realize that sometimes plans change, but if you sign up and then find yourself unable to attend, please remove your name or notify the event organizers.

The San Damiano Cross
(St Francis Cross)
The San Damiano Cross is the cross which St. Francis of Assisi was praying when he is said to have received the commission from the Lord to rebuild the Church. It now hangs in the Basilica of Saint Clare in Assisi, Italy, Franciscans cherish this cross as the symbol of their mission from God.

EXPANDED PRAYER OPPORTUNITIES ON SUNDAY MORNINGS!
After each Sunday Eucharistic service, prayer will now be available in two forms:
1) Trained members of the prayer team will be on hand to pray for you personally and confidentially for any need. Simply walk over to any prayer team member (identified by a red badge), and you will be joined by one or more other prayer team members, move to a quiet corner, and be prayed for.
2) Blue prayer request cards have been placed in all pew pockets if you would prefer to submit a request in writing. Just fill out a card and drop it in either of the two red boxes (one at the back of the church and one on the table beside the door to the fellowship hall). Prayer team members will pray for written requests during the subsequent week.
Please be assured that all prayer requests are held in strictest confidence. Never consider a prayer need too small, too trivial…or too big! Prayer team members always begin by listening for God’s direction, and only then do they verbalize the prayers that they sense on God’s heart for you. Please take advantage of these new opportunities to receive God’s comfort and peace!
