"Prayer is the broadening of our attention on the world around us, looking for the arrival of God, who announces himself by speaking to us and calling us to pray for others in and through the actions of ministry.  Jesus is the minister because he prays for us.  God is so fully a speaking God of ministry that he is the never-ending discourse of the Father and Son through the Spirit in prayer."  Andrew Root; "Forming a People Who Pray"; Christian Century; July 3, 2019; pg. 22.

Services at the Lutheran Church remain at 11:00 through September 8.  Welcome anyone!
