We all need prayer and support during ordinary times, but as we are in uncertain times with the Coronavirus, we need it even more. So we offer reflections, spiritual practices, online groups, the opportunity to share prayer requests of those you want us to hold in prayer, with the hope that they meet you where you are and offer solace during this time.
We want you to know we are upholding each one in prayer. And if you want to share with us a specific name to hold in prayer, we are happy to do so. Please send us a message with the person’s name. Peace to you.
Reflections, meditations, and spiritual practices offer us grounding, comfort, and peace.
