While our in-person mission to Uganda had to be cancelled this year, the need continues, and past Senior Warden and missionary to Uganda, Jane Glenn received this message from Fr. Ezra:
“The May floods affected the Kasemire Community income, hence the Christians have failed to complete the construction of the school which you built for their children. The walls of the school building which you started at the foundation need to be plastered. The classrooms’ floor need to be cemented. Currently, the classrooms are dusty and they are infecting the children with flue and cough. Constructing the classrooms floor and plastering the walls need 630 bags of cement ; and each bag costs $9 (9 dollars) We therefore humbly request you to mobilize Christians, friends and well wishers to generously contribute some bags of cement for a strong Church founded School building.
God bless you abundantly.
Peace and good health to you all.
Your friend in Christ’s service, Fr Ezra.
We will be accepting donations to help, though the church. Please note “Uganda” on your check.
ADVENT CONTINUES !
Journeying with Family and Friends [via episcopalchurch.org]
As we continue our Advent walk, we invite you to see the Way of Love as a journey that can expand to include family and friends. Mary said “yes” to the call to birth Jesus, God’s Word, into the world and immediately went in haste to share her good news with her cousin, Elizabeth—a four-day journey into the Judean hills. Isn’t that what happens when we hear good news? We are driven to go and tell others. The Way of Love is good news that demands to be shared.
Sunday, December 6
What part of gathering for worship fills your heart with hope?
Monday, December 7
Read or watch your local news. Where is reconciliation needed? Pray for healing.
Tuesday, December 8
Read Luke 1:45. Consider how your faith is a blessing. Share your faith story with a friend.
Wednesday, December 9
Offer a prayer of thanks for each person you encounter – both stranger and friend – silently or aloud.
Thursday, December 10
Call or write a family member with whom you desire a closer relationship. Share with them how they are a blessing.
Friday, December 11
Reflect: Where have I fallen short this week? How can I make amends? Give thanks for the gift of fresh starts that we have through God’s grace.
Saturday, December 12
Set aside 30 minutes to rest, pause, and breathe deeply with a friend or family member. Give thanks for the restorative power of love in relationship.
