Respect Life Month: October 2018
This month of RESPECT LIFE, may we show by our words and actions that every human life is cherished and chosen. As the month ends this coming week, lets pray collectively for all:
Every Life is Worth Living
Heavenly Father, thank you
for the precious gift of life.
Help us to cherish and protect
this gift, even in the midst of fear,
pain, and suffering.
Give us love for all people,
especially the most vulnerable,
and help us bear witness to the
truth that every life is worth living.
Grant us the humility to accept
help when we are in need,
and teach us to be merciful to all.
Through our words and actions,
may others encounter the
of Your mercy.
We ask this through
Christ, our Lord.

FALL BIBLE STUDY
A STUDY ON LECTIO DIVINA PRAYER
Prayer is as necessary for our spiritual life as breathing is for our physical life! If you agree with this statement, this study is for you. “Though prayer is one of the essentials of a thriving faith, we often feel as if we’re talking to ourselves or, worse, as if we’re talking to no one at all. How can something so vital to the Faith be so elusive?”
Prayer: Finding Intimacy With God includes: • The Lectio Divina approach of Reading, Reflecting, Responding, and Contemplating • Penetrating questions and insights for the six video sessions • Additional resources for a fuller understanding and application • Daily reflections to deepen the meaning of prayer in your life • Space for personal journaling.
PLEASE REGISTER EARLY Fall 2018 Bible Study Registration
