Word to the Wyes 2-11-21

A Prayer for Families on Valentine’s Day
Almighty God, our heavenly Father, who settest the solitary in families: We commend to thy continual care the homes in which thy people dwell. Put far from them, we beseech thee, every root of bitterness, the desire of vainglory, and the pride of life. Fill them with faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness. Knit together in constant affection those who, in Holy Matrimony, have been made one flesh. Turn the hearts of the parents to the children, and the hearts of the children to the parents; and so enkindle fervent charity among us all, that we may evermore be kindly affectioned one to another; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Attention to all Homeless Shelter Volunteers – Providing dinners is easier than in the past, as you only need to drop off the dinner (usu. meat and veggie casserole) at 5:30 at the Kent Island United Methodist Church.  Thanks to Mary Julie, who has volunteered to prepare dinner on behalf of our Parish today, Sunday February 14th. Please contact me if you are interested or want more information before committing. Thank you very much!
