Another lovely quilt (for pictures see attachments) – Mary made this quilt for Alice’s (from GSA) granddaughter Maya for her graduation. About the quilt Mary says, “the pattern is designed by Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero called Kaleidoscope 2015. Maya…wanted animals of land, sea and air as well as the universe. That is where the backing came from, totally from my fuzzy little brain. It was great fun… ” Thank you Mary for sharing your fun and creativity with us. 

Scripture for Sunday June 27, 2021:  Mark 5:21-43; 2Samuel 1:1, 17-27; Psalm 130; 2Corinthians 8:7-15

Scripture: Psalm 130:1-6: Help God–I’ve hit rock bottom! Master, hear my cry for help! Listen hard! Open our ears! Listen to my cries for mercy. If you, God kept records on wrongdoings, who would stand a chance? As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit, and that’s why you’re worshiped. I pray God–my life a prayer–and wait for what he’ll say and do. My life’s on the line before God, my Lord, waiting and watching till morning, waiting and watching till morning. 

Prayer: Holy, creating God, in this season of Pentecost we experience your spirit everywhere. In extraordinary and ordinary moments, we know you are active in our world. May we add our actions to yours so that your love may be known everywhere. Amen. 

Know that we are praying for each one of you as you find your way through this time. If you have comments, suggestions, or any thoughts about worship or how you’re doing, please be in touch. Trinity is here for you and we will respond. May you know God’s presence and peace with you as we continue to move through this new reality,

Elizabeth
