This past week I have spent some time sorting through documents that I have used as resources for classes, retreats and spiritual formation sessions. I am trying to decide what to keep and what to discard. Many of these articles are like family as I have found them helpful again and again. The prayer that is below is one of my favorites. It has seen me through great loss in the death of my parents, was a solace to my soul when I faced surgery and kept me moving forward when I would have rather become stagnant and sluggish.

As you may know, we have a number of members who are not able to regularly attend church services at Trinity because of health or mobility issues. Several members volunteer on a regular basis to visit them and take communion to them. Some of those volunteers are now retiring from this ministry, and so new volunteers are needed. If you would be interested, please contact Deacon Jim Lanning at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by calling 630-462-7135. The commitment would be for one or two visits per month.
