THOUGHTS & SMILES:

 

Just a little word of kindness,

     Just a little word of love,

Just a little smile of tenderness,
     Are all blessings from above.  

 

Just a little thought of comfort,

    Just a token that you care,

Just a little gesture of sympathy,

    May be answer to a prayer.

 

Just a little smile of happiness,

   Just a little song of peace,

Just a word of praise at eventide,

   Will give the soul release.

 

For a little bit of kindness,

   And a little bit of care,

The little bit of tenderness,

   Are the essence of prayer.”         

 

Holy Trinity will be sending out a newsletter every two weeks with updates, along with the bible readings and psalms for the week. If you have something you would like to contribute, please send to the church’s email address-holytrinityyorkton@sasktel.net

THOUGHTS & SMILES:

I Looked for God….

I looked for god and found Him,

Where the prairie lily grows;

I heard Him pass, in the rustling grass,

And the nod of the first wild rose.

 

I looked for God and found Him,

Where His robe had touched the sod;

The fruit grew, and the flowers too,

In a tribute to their God.

 

I found him in the robin’s song,

That follows after rain;

And I see His hand, in the rainbow grand,

And the floods shall not come again.

 

I see His path in the star-filled sky,

And the moon, the lamp of night;

And the north winds sigh as across the sky,

The clouds float in their flight.

 

I looked for God and found Him,

In all of nature’s ways;

For this is the home he gave us to own,

For all our earthly days.

“The Spirit of truth will bear witness to me, says the Lord; and you also are witnesses.” John 15:26-27

National Indigenous Day of Prayer 
Creator God, from you every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. You have rooted and grounded us in your covenant love, and empowered us by your Spirit to speak the truth in love, and to walk in your way towards justice and wholeness. Mercifully grant that your people,
journeying together in partnership, to help one another to grow into the full stature of Christ, who is our light and our life. Amen

Father’s Day – My Father’s Philosophy
My father had a creed for life he taught to everyone:

                                          “Look forward to your pleasant times until your work is done.
                                           When you have finished every task, you mind will be at rest;
                                            Life’s good time are the sweetest when you’ve done your very best.”

                                            I have kept this lesson in my heart as seasons come and go;
                                            And every test I’ve put it to, I have always found it so.  D. A. Hoover


The Collect: O God our defender, storms rage about us and cause us to be afraid.

-Prayer
Loving God, we come to you trusting in your mercy and knowing that your steadfast love endures forever. Look with mercy on those who are harmed or displaced. Give them strength to meet the days ahead, your peace which passes all understanding and new hope in the resurrection. Move in those who are able to give aid, that we may be your hands and heart on earth. Be with all who offer assistance, may your Spirit uphold them. As you have made water a sign of your kingdom, and of cleansing and rebirth, grant your people vision to see a new life on the other side of disaster.
To you be given all honour and praise, through Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord. Amen
