Lord, we ask for prayers of comfort and peace for the family of Cora Guillermo, who passed away on 2/18/20 in Fairfield, Iowa. Some of us remember the many hours of mission work Cora and Art provided here at Douglas Community UMC.
Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
And a Prayer from Ellie W . . .
We know that the world is in distress. We know that the voice of fear is constantly pumping in our souls, terrifying us. But let us take time to remember. Let us remember the wonderful gift of companionship that our neighbors give us. Let us be thankful for the little things that we see everyday. Let us remember that we have the Holy Spirit by our side, encouraging us to have joy, and to share that joy. Let us never forget these things. Amen.
With the Bishop's letter tonight, we are called to continue to live into a new way of being a faith community on Douglas Island. We are already a few steps down this road. In just one week we have successfully worshiped online for the first time. If you missed it, click below. (Skip the first 10 minutes.) We have successfully met together for the first time as a church council using the ZOOM platform. Some of us have met up each night this week in our ZOOM room to see one another's faces and to share encouragement with each other. We are "making the road by walking".
God is with us. We can do this!
