For your prayers –
I mentioned to those attending the Boundaries Workshop in Bloomington this past Tuesday that 41-week pregnant daughter Maria and her husband had just headed to the hospital and I would be checking my cell phone periodically through the morning. At the Boundaries Workshop Wednesday morning in Mt. Vernon, I was let them know “It’s a girl!” Kris and I welcome your prayers at the birth of our first grandchild, Lily Alice Snodgrass, born to Maria and Drew Snodgrass at 4:00 a.m. Wednesday morning (for the statisticians among you: 7# 7 oz., 21”). All are doing well. Check out the photo on my Instagram page.
Blessed Reformation Sunday to all!
We give you thanks and praise, O God, our heavenly Father, by whose creating power these servants of yours have been blessed with the gift of a child. We pray that you give them wisdom and guidance, to raise this child in faith and love of you. With full hearts, we lift up to you as well those who continue yet to desire to conceive; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Bishop S. John Roth
