A Gardener’s Prayer

Vegetable_GardenFather of all gardeners, we thank Thee that in the long ago Thou didst begin the world in a garden..

We thank Thee for the morning and the singing of the bird.   

We thank Thee for the quiet and peace of eventide and the blessing of sleep which comes with the night.

As we rise in the morning to work in our gardens, grant that the toil of our bodies may bring tranquility to our minds; that the growth of our  plantings be exemplified in the growth of our souls; that the fruit of our trees be the perfect attainment, the crowning glory of a life dedicated to Thee.  Amen.

Claire Dudley Shares Her Experience From the Philly Mission Trip

While I was in Philadelphia I saw, heard, and felt things that I had never experienced before.

As we first entered the city, my eyes were wide with the site of  non-stop hectic traffic; cars zoomed around us as we found our way to the Vincentian Center for Youth & Young Adults, where we would be staying during our time in Philadelphia. As we exited off the   highway, I saw how run down the buildings and homes were where some of the people of Philadelphia lived. Even though the plurality of the buildings were dilapidated, I could imagine in my mind what the row houses looked like during the golden days of city life. While we were driving through the city, to the various destinations where we going to help, I saw many different kinds of people. Continue reading
