Prayer for the Week

 

 

Gracious God, holding before us the plate with the bread of life, offered without money or price, yet priceless, satisfying, rich:
open our mouths to receive your goodness, so that whatever hungers devil us,
we taste your love and turn to your Beloved,
Jesus Christ. Amen

Can You Host a Visiting College Student from 5 to 7 June?

They are part of the Lutheran campus ministry at the University of Maryland and will be spending a week in Taizé before coming to Geneva for two days of meetings. We have been asked to help house the students for their two nights here. Housing a student would mean giving him/her a place to sleep, and possibly sharing dinner with him/her. Can you host one or more students? Contact the church office or sign up on the sheet this morning.
