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,

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

                                           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.

May 31-The Day of Pentecost 

The day of Pentecost marks 50 days since Easter Day and brings the Easter season to an end. It is a major feast of the Church’s year when Christians recall how God’s Holy Spirit was given to the disciples after Jesus’ ascension, empowering them to begin the work of making disciples of all nations.
Pentecost (comes from the Greek word for fiftieth) has its roots in the Jewish Feast of Weeks.
Jesus had promised his followers that, although they would not see him after his Ascension, they would receive the Holy Spirt to guide and inspire them.

The Acts of the Apostles describes how the crowds gathered in Jerusalem-representing many nationalities and speaking many languages-were able to hear the disciples preaching in their own language.

“When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.”  Acts 2:2

The colour most often associated with Pentecost is red, representing the tongues of fire which the Acts of the Apostles describes appearing above the heads of the disciples as a sign that they received the Holy Spirit.

Prayer for Pentecost

Come, Holy Spirit come and set our hearts afire with your love and compassion and power. We are grateful, O God, creator of the universe and lover of all people, for your invitation to worship, for opportunities to adore you, to hear your word, and to receive it into our hearts. 

On this day, we want to come before you in a way pleasing to you and good for us, so we sincerely and humbly ask that you be with us , that you cleanse our speaking and our listening, that you open and enlighten our hearts and minds, and that you awaken and strengthen our willingness to acknowledge you as the master of our lives and to live for you in all situations and circumstances. O God, breathe into us the flesh breath of your Spirit. Let us be so filled with your presence that we live today and everyday with greater grace, deeper love and renewed joy.

Come, Holy Spirit come and set our hearts afire with your love and compassion and power. On this day, when we celebrate the birth of your church, we pray that you will give each of us and the people of this world your peace…your shalom.  We hold before you all the people of our neighbourhoods, our partners in ministry, and those who have and those who have not the goods that bring us such comfort and joy. We hold before you all the people of our city. We pray for healthy relationships among our city officials so that decisions that are made work for the good of all of us; the rich and the poor, the powerful and the powerless, the decisions makers and the marginalized. We pray for those who have been victims of crimes and for those who are perpetrators of those crimes. We pray that you will help us be engaged with one another and with our community so that we make a difference at all times and in all places.

Come, Holy Spirit come and set our hearts afire with your love and compassion and power. Give us courage to hold the value of your Kingdom in the midst of the choices we make for ourselves and for your church. Thank you for the privilege of coming to you in prayer. Do not abandon us. Let light shine where there is darkness, let there be peace where there is now strife, let there be courage and confidence where now there is sorrow and anxiety. Hear our prayer, not because we deserve your mercy, but for Jesus’ sake through whom you have claimed us to be your children, and have redeemed us for your work in this world. Strengthen us through our service to you in our church and in our community. Bring us all at last into the awareness of your presence, where we shall praise you, and honour you, in all we say and do.

Come, Holy Spirit come and set our hearts afire with your love and compassion, and power. We pray in the name of your Son and our Saviour, Jesus the Christ. Amen



Collect: Almighty and ever living God, who fulfilled the promises of Easter by sending us your Holy
  Spirit and opening to every race and nation the way of life eternal, keep us in the unity of your Spirit,
