Our Prayer for the Sick
Father of mercies and God of all comfort, our only help in time of need, look with favor upon Your servants who are ill. Assure them of Your mercy and comfort them with the awareness of Your goodness. Grant that, resting on Your protection, they may fear no evil, for You are with them to deliver them; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Pastor Ray will be out of town attending a retreat of The Society of the Holy Trinity from Tuesday, September 26 - Thursday, September 28. The Society is a ministerium for ordained Lutheran pastors, who commit themselves to gather regularly for hearing the Word, celebrating the Lord's Supper, prayer and theological reflection.
The members work together to shape a parish pastoral practice consistent with the catholic Faith as formulated in the canonical Scriptures and confessed in the ecumenical Creeds and Lutheran Confessions. The ministerium provides one another with the opportunity for private and personal confession and absolution, engages one another in disciplined reflection on the mysteries of the Faith, sharing our learning in the Scriptures, the Creeds and the Confessions, as well as Christian theology and literature--desiring to glorify God with our minds and to be more faithful and learned teachers of the Faith.
The retreat will be held in Chicago, Illinois. Following the retreat, Pastor Ray will take four days of vacation from Friday, September 29 - Monday, October 2 to visit Kenneth in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
PLEASE NOTE: From September 26 -October 2, if there are any emergencies while Past is away, please contact the Parish Secretary Barbara Bishop.
