A Collect from Trinity Episcopal Church

Swanton, Vermont


 

God, who is the giver of every good gift, you are ever-present in our lives and in the world. You act through us, your people, to care for and provide for everyone.

 

We pray for the courage to break out of our insecurity and fear around money as we deepen our understanding of our relationship to you and how we use our financial resources to do your work in the world.

 

We pray these things that we might know you better, that you will increase our desire and ability to give and help others through ministry and friendship, and to gratefully commit ourselves to the work you have given us to do. Amen

Mary Oliver Poem





Submitted By Tony Kulina 7.20.20


 

Several years ago when the previous Rector first came on board I wrote periodic brief articles for the “Voice” until he got his feet on the ground. I enjoyed writing about my faith because it means so much to me. Those who know me also know that St. Paul is one of my favorite scripture writers, and one of my all-time favorites that I loved reading to you in years past as a lector is this one from Romans, sometimes called Guidelines for Christian Living.

 

 

                Let your love be genuine; hate what is evil and hold fast to what is good;

 

                Love one another with mutual affection and outdo one another in showing honor.

 

                Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord.

 

                Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering and persevere in prayer.

 

                Contribute to the needs of the saints, extend hospitality to strangers.

 

                Bless those who persecute you, bless and do not curse them.

 

                Rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep.

 

                Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly,

 

                Do not claim to be wiser than you are.

 

                Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.

 

                If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.

 

                Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave room for the wrath of God,

 

                For it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay says the Lord.”

 

                No, “if your enemy is hungry, feed them; if they are thirsty, give them something to drink;

 

                For by doing this you will heap burning coals (shame) on their heads.”

 

                Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil by doing good.

 

                Romans 12:9-21

Prayer for a Pandemic

by Cameron Bellm 

May we who are merely inconvenienced 
Remember those whose lives are at stake. 
May we who have no risk factors 
Remember those most vulnerable. 
May we who have the luxury of working from home Remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close 
Remember those who have no options. 
May we who have to cancel our trips 
Remember those that have no safe place to go. 
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market 
Remember those who have no margin at all. 
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home 
Remember those who have no home. 
As fear grips our country, let us choose love. 
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, 
Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.
 Amen.
