Joys and Concerns:

Pam Sherman asked for prayers for her coworker, Tom Golliver, City of Tulsa CIO, who was put on administrative leave.

The Shermans will be hosting a Japanese exchange student this week.

Mary Staat asked for prayers for the three Reidy children at her school who lost their mother to cancer.

Some of you didn’t hear the first stanza of the opening prayer and asked to have it included here:

Master, they say that when I seem
To be in speech with you,
Since you make no replies, it’s all a dream
– One talker aping two.

They are half right, but not as they
Imagine; rather, I
Seek in myself the things I meant to say,
And lo! the wells are dry.

Then, seeing me empty, you forsake
The Listener’s role, and through
My dead lips breathe and into utterance wake
The thoughts I never knew.

And thus you neither need reply
Nor can; thus, while we seem
Two talking, thou art One forever, and I
No dreamer, but thy dream.

– C.S. Lewis, 1964

Have a great week, and we’ll see you Sunday.
