Together in Faith: Now about eight days (later) Jesus took with him Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. Luke 9:28
The evangelist tells us that what Jesus had in mind when he led his friends up the mountain was to pray. In fact, it seems that Jesus often took time off for prayer. That may be a good lesson for us. In the midst of our busy lives, even when we’re doing the good work of a steward, it’s important that we take time off to pray.
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there is an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison. We encourage parishioners to seek out this assigned member whenever there is a suggestion, question or concern. The liaisons will bring all comments to the monthly meeting of the Bishop's Committee to be addressed as appropriate. This week’s Parishioner Liaison is Anali Perry.
