Online Ministry 07/20 - 07/26/2020

In the past week we answered the important call of helping our neighbors, Alaska Child & Family, protect people with Covid-19 masks. Unalaska UMC matched donated funds to purchase 1,300 masks with $300 dollars! Thank you to all who helped make this possible.
     

PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION

Lord of mustard seeds and yeast, we come to you this day, seeking your Word and will for us. Make us people who care deeply about the well-being of others. Give us courage to be yeast for the rising of hope and peace throughout the world. Open our hearts to your redeeming love, for we ask this in Christ’s Name. AMEN.
     

Psalm 128

128:1 Happy is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in his ways.
128:2 You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall go well with you.
128:3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.
128:4 Thus shall the man be blessed who fears the LORD.
128:5 The LORD bless you from Zion. May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.
128:6 May you see your children's children. Peace be upon Israel!

ABUNDANT HEALTH

     
BUILD HABITS THAT DON’T ADD POUNDS. 
Cut calories by skipping foods high in solid fats and added sugars. Limit fatty meats like ribs, bacon, and hot dogs. Choose cakes, cookies, candies, and ice cream just as occasional treats. 
     
MAKE HALF YOUR PLATE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES. 
Add fruit to meals as part of main or side dishes. Choose red, orange or dark-green vegetable like tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and broccoli, along with other vegetables for meals.
     

PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING

God of grace and mercy: we offer our gifts to you this day, knowing that is your love and presence that have sustained us through all our difficult days. We know there have been days when fear and anxiety have gotten the better of us, and we have needed the reminder Paul gave in the Epistle to the Romans, “If God is for us, who is against us?” Help us to live as Christ calls us, to share what we have and show love and compassion, as Christ taught us. We boldly pray, in the name of Jesus our Savior and Redeemer. Amen. (Romans 8:26-39)
