Keeping close while keeping our distance.
A weekly guide for this journey. Our destination: Big Love BACK By the Sea.
Volume 1, Issue 3, August 17, 2020
With the potential of hazardous weather this week,
this issue of Traveling Mercies is a little different.
BE PREPARED !
You should stock your home with supplies that may be needed during the emergency period.
At a minimum, these supplies should include:
A Prayer for all of us as we await the storms to come:
O God, in you we find safety. As we prepare for the arrival of the storm, may we be gathered in the safety of your loving embrace. As we face the possibility of danger through lost power, damaged homes and churches, keep us and our dear ones safe. May your love for us unite us — and support us; and enable us to support those for whom danger breaches their hope. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Sunday School Lessons
for the kids (and the young at heart):
After much instruction, story-telling, miracles, encounters, and prayer, Jesus finally asks two big questions to his disciples – Who do people say the Son of Man is? And Who do you say that I am. Whenever Jesus asks questions in the Gospels, it often has a way of marking an important teaching or an important moment, so we better pay attention. Questions are how Jesus can gauge how his mission in the world is going. Are the disciples and the people understanding who he is? What do they say about him and what he is doing? Who do they say he is?

“O God, our heavenly Father, whose glory fills the whole creation, and whose presence we find wherever we go: preserve those who travel; surround them with your loving care; protect them from every danger; and bring them in safety to their journey’s end; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
