Let us pray.
Father, we are so grateful for all you have given us. We thank you for the precious lives you have given us.
Thank you for providing us with this place and time to gather and share our lives and love with each other.
Lord, please bless all of our classmates, teachers and friends who were unable to be here with us and heal all those who are suffering.
Please bless the food, both physical and spiritual, you have provided for us.
Please bless the people who are preparing our food and those who are serving us today.
We ask all of this in the name of your Son, Jesus.
A blast from the past – one year ago:
I thank you for those who are having Scrapple for me this morning as I prepare for the best substitute I have here in California: a fried SPAM sandwich. I love you all!
Now I get to have some with you all, provided John Atkinson didn’t order the last piece.
