O God, our sovereign and our shepherd,
who brought again your Son Jesus Christ from the valley of death,
comfort us with your protecting presence
and your angels of goodness and love,
that we also may come home
and dwell with him in your house for ever.

Abide with us, Lord, for it is evening,
and day is drawing to a close.
Abide with us and with your whole Church,
in the evening of the day,
in the evening of life,
in the evening of the world;
abide with us and with all your faithful ones, O Lord,
in time and in eternity. Amen.

    Captain Kevin – Hi Friends, I’m really struggling with pain, fatigue, and vertigo right now. I have to be back to work officially in 12 days, and have so much to do to get ready for the new school year, but it’s difficult to focus on those tasks.

  2. Hi All

    I have a question for all Pastors and Elders coming from an assignment in my Master’s program:

    How are folks with special needs served or given the ability and opportunity to serve in your church? Basically, how is your inclusive of people with special needs?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please feel safe to reply, I know it is a sensitive subject, but I’m not casting aspersion. I know first hand how difficult and awkward it can be, even though it shouldn’t be.

  3. In my church, when we receive the Eucharist, most parishoners walk up to the Communion rail at the front of the church. But If someone’s in a wheelchair or otherwise disabled, our pastor walks to their pew and serves them where they are sitting.

    I’m not an elder or pastor, but just a parishoner.

  4. Interesting and kind of him. Thanks for your reply 🙂

  5. Bob

    Dues he do the same for children or adults with obvious intellectual disabilities or severe autism for instance?

  6. Take this to Open Blogging. We do not use the prayer thread for anything but prayer requests.

  7. Sorry Michael

    Can I post this to the last post on Jean’s Gospel as well? It’s a fitting topic

  8. Late request, but if anyone checks in here this Thursday eve, one of my children was drafted to run for a local office (unopposed) – there is a meeting tonight and the LGTetc. community has gotten wind of her Christian views and are on the attack – she so needs prayer cover now … if you’re so inclined, thank you folks

  9. Em,

    She’s covered…

  10. Michael, thank you so much
    Wiith tears, (((hugs))) – consider yourself hugged dusty style. 😉

  11. short report from my daughter… “meeting went well, all things considered” the prayer was heard, i know

    an interesting aside, the town has become a college town as our University expands and they want to be the driving force in the town – a long time friend of one of my other daughters is a professor there and knows both of my daughters – she, as are most of the educated-so-called among us these days, is very anti Christ as is the school, itself… a strong Christian is not their idea of who should sit on city council

  12. Sorry i missed your request em….so glad the meeting went well. Will keep praying

  13. thank you, dusty… your prayer vigil keeps us all praying, i think
