From the Desk of the Senior Warden

        Prayer for Times of Great Uncertainty

                                             New Zealand Prayer Book

God of the present moment.

God who in Jesus stills the storm

And soothes the frantic heart;

Bring hope and courage to us as we wait

           In uncertainty.

Bring hope that you will makes us the equal

           Of whatever lies ahead.

Bring us courage to endure what cannot be avoided.

           For your will is health and wholeness;

You are God, and we need you.   Amen.

Life is reopening all around us. We are preparing for that “reopening day” even though we do not have a definitive date. The Diocese of Bethlehem has given us guidelines to aid in our preparation. Your Vestry and Jane are putting together a plan for St. Margaret’s with your safety and welfare a priority. These plans will be available to all when completed.

The church building is “closed.” But the hearts of the people of St. Margaret’s are “open” in welcome.

Peace, Prayers, and Patience during these days.
