This Week’s Snippet from Russ:

“The Willdnerness might be a lonely place, but it’s not always a bad place to be.  Time alone in the wilderness can deepen our awareness of God and be very refreshing to our souls.”


Just Sayin’…

Listen with the intent to understand, not with the intent to reply.”



A Prayer:

O God, light of the hearts that see you, life of the souls that love you, strength of the thoughts that seek you:  To turn from you is to fall, to turn to you is to rise, to abide in you is to stand fast forever.  Although we are unworthy too approach you or to ask anything at all of you, grant us your grace and blessing for the sake of Jesus Christ our Redeemer,   Amen
