Dear Faith Community and Family,

So sorry for having to cancel the castle service last Sunday.  Because of the cold rainy weather it seems we made a wise decision.  We look forward to worshiping with you in February.

I want to thank you for your healing prayers for my shoulder replacement and ask that you continue the prayers.  The surgery was postponed until April 18 which also happens to be Holy Thursday.  The postponement was due to two medical issues.  One is resolved.  The second is being worked on.  I am eager to get this done; however, I want good odds for a positive outcome when the surgery is completed.  I was able to get a pain injection which is helping reduce the intensity of pain.  YEA!!

February 20 we will receive our friend, Shelley Gilchrist, into the Catholic Church as she discerns becoming a priest with us.  We are excited to be on the journey with Shelley.  The service will have our bishop, Bridget Mary Meehan, and several priests in ARCWP join us for this first time the Rite of Acceptance will be experienced in ARCWP.  Shelley is an Episcopal who was ready to be ordained a deacon; however, her sense of justice would not let her take that step in her Episcopal Diocese.  Her justice beliefs are more in keeping with what we in ARCWP believe and after some serious prayer and discussion, Shelley is seeking to join us.  To be  a Roman Catholic Woman Priest requires we be Catholic in all the best definitions of being Catholic.  If you would like to join us that night, please call Miriam at 386-569-7311 so we will know how many people to plan for.

As I write this, the government shutdown is over for a few weeks.  Let us all pray it is not resumed.  I personally know too many people directly effected by the delay and lack of pay checks.  Did you know that contracted government workers will NOT get back pay?  What an unnecessary loss caused by politics instead of genuine christian love and caring for others.  I don't want to get into politics, but we christians need to be involved and truly love our neighbors as ourselves.  I hope you will find a way to take action as the Spirit leads you.  Too many people are going without basic necessities right here in America.  We have to get off the sidelines and stop being afraid to speak truth to power - at whatever level that power is in your life.

Other issues right now are the terrible weather reports all over.  Pray that people will drive safely so that there will be no needless deaths on the roads.  Dear God, help us all be more thoughtful and kind to one another.  Help us to slow down and be patient in the midst of the chaos all around us.  Help us to realize that you made the people around us who seem to be irritating us.  You love THEM as well as US.  Dear God, help us stop the hate.  Help us have the courage to love.

Know we continue to pray for you and your families and the desires of your hearts.  Please pray for us if you cannot join us in one of our ministries.  We seek and need the Spirit's wisdom and guidance.

Love and peace,
Wanda
