Our Family Fun Fest is October 15th.  It will be a great afternoon of fun
for our parishioners.  We also have Raffle Tickets available.  There are 4
$1000 prizes, a $500 prize and 5 $100 prizes.  If you'd like tickets, see

"As for that in the good soil, these are the ones who, when they hear the
word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patient
endurance."  ~Luke 8:15

The laws of nature cannot be changed and must be obeyed if we are to stay
healthy.  No exceptions can be made in our case.  We can submit to the laws
of nature or they will finally break us.  And in the realm of the spirit, in
all human relationships, we can submit to the moral laws and to the will of
God.  If we continue to break the laws of honesty, purity, unselfishness and
love, we can be broken to some extent ourselves.  The moral and spiritual
laws of God, like the laws of nature, are unbreakable without some disaster.
If we are dishonest, impure, selfish and unloving, we are not living
according to the laws of the spirit and we may suffer the consequences.

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may submit to the laws of nature and to the laws of God. I
pray that I may live in harmony with all the laws of life.

have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!
