Mission, Vision & Core Values
We have been given the sacred gift of today.
May it be a day to heal, to learn, to search, to find meaning, to hope.
May it be a day to laugh, to cry. to love, to share, to reflect, to grow.
May it be a day to be comforted by others, and to comfort in return.
to embrace others, to touch the heart, to hold close the soul.
Let this day lead you to amazing discoveries. May you find beauty in nature and in the people around you.
May you find joy in helping someone without them even being aware of it.
May you find peace knowing that God shelters and strengthens you.
This day is a sacred gift. May it be a day of new beginnings and may we each
embrace all it holds.
A Companion for the Journey
Some days, God, I feel abandoned. left alone, disconnected,
unable to handle even the simplest tasks.
I wander confused, trying to sort out the next step,
the next responsibility, the next stage of the journey.
It seems there is no one to help sort out the challenges,
to help carry the load, to provide a shoulder to cry on or a listening ear.
You call me to wait, Lord, to wait on you: to be still and stop the endless doing;
to be calm, and stop the endless consuming; to be quiet and listen for your leading.
You call me to discover that I never journey alone,
that you provide companions for the journey when I remember to seek them out.
You call me to discover that you are enough,
and I am enough, because of you.
