A reflection for Memorial Day 2020

The first words of these young Marines were invariably a plea to know if their buddy had been picked up.



A nurses’ prayer to be enough during COVID-19 pandemic

Lord Jesus, You only have us,
to stand in for You. Make ours Your healing touch. Make ours the words You’d speak.
Make our outreach to families and loved ones the comfort and hope You’d give.
Let us be Your love.
