This evening's thanksgiving


"Avag Vanq" Gospel - Armenian (1200-01)
Avag Vanq Monastery near Erzincan
British Library Collection. Or. 13654 folio 182r.

Another friend informs us she has a lectern for us from a church in the UK.

Each day new blessings and more prayers come this way.

The prayers we are using here mostly come from The Book of Occasional Services 2003.
O God the Creator and Ruler of all things, your reign grows like a mustard seed into abundant life: Bless those who plant and tend the new life of your Church, that it may become a place of welcome, a refuge of healing, a school for souls, and a life-giving spring; all of which we ask through Jesus Christ our strength and our salvation. Amen.

--Paul+
