THOUGHTS & SMILES
A single guy decided life would be more fun if he had a pet. So he went to a pet store and told the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet. After some discussion, he finally bought a talking centipede (100-legged bug) which came in a little white box to use for his house.
He took the box back home and found a good spot for the box and decided he would start off by taking his new pet to church with him.
He asked the centipede in the box, “Would you like to go to church with me today? We will have a good time.”    But no answer from his new pet
This bothered him a bit but he waited a few minutes and then asked again, “How about going to church with me and receive blessings?”   But again, there was no answer from his new pet and friend.
So he waited a few minutes more, thinking about the situation. The guy decided to invite the centipede one last time. This time he put his face up against the box and shouted.
Hey, in there! Would you like to go to church with me and learn about God?”
This time a little voice came out of the box, “I heard you the first time! I’m putting my shoes on!”

-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
