THOUGHTS & SMILES:
God's Blessings for Health and Happiness
There is nothing better than other people praying for you. We're not getting older, just getting closer to home! Be Still. The instructions are to pick people You want God to bless. I pick you. This prayer is powerful, and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is no cost but a lot of rewards. Let's always pray for one another. *
*The prayer: “Father, Thank You for each and every day You have blessed us here on earth. Thank You for Your tender mercies. Thank You for giving us friends and family to share our joys, and our sorrows. I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and those I care deeply for, who are reading this right now. Where there is joy, give them continued joy, where there is pain, give them your peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence. Where there is need, fulfill their needs. Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings. In Jesus' name. Amen.”

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
Please note the following announcement sent on behalf of Bishop Rob:
I am pleased to announce the appointment of Julie Moser as the new Children and Youth Missioner for the diocese of Qu’Appelle. The appointment is a half time position effective January 8, 2014. The stipend will be paid out of the diocesan mission action plan budget.
Julie has been involved in youth ministry for over 25 years with a special emphasis on discipleship-based ministries. She has worked as a youth leader in Australia and Canada as well as a youth ministry trainer and advisor for Anglican Youthworks in the diocese of Sydney. Julie is also the author of several youth Bible study resources and co-author of "Building to Grow, youth leadership training manual."
Julie is married to Ken and lives in Caronport, Saskatchewan where she also works as a part time high school chaplain.
We welcome Julie as the new Diocesan Children / Youth Missioner.
This is an exciting appointment. Having someone with the passion, experience and proven leadership skills that Julie has, is a great gift to the diocese for which we give thanks for God’s provision. This will not be an easy ministry to fulfil, there is a reason why Children and youth ministry is a major impetus in the diocesan Mission Action Plan. There is much work to be done and we pray for willing workers to join Julie in building up children and youth ministry across the diocese.
Please uphold Julie and this ministry in prayer. Thank you.
In Advent Joy
