Wonderful fall weather, frost on the pumpkins. 21 people from Concordia went prayer walking on Saturday morning, distributing almost 300 door hangers informing people that we were praying for them and inviting them to contact us with specific prayer concerns. Amazing stuff happens when the Good News comes with power -- things previously thought impossible begin to occur. Hosting six young people from Youth Encounter brought blessings all day Saturday and Sunday morning.
Ponder this gem from the current bishop of Rome, Benedict XVI:
"Being missionaries means loving God with all one's heart, even to the point, if necessary, of dying for him...being missionaries means stooping down to the needs of all, like the Good Samaritan, especially those of the poorest and most destitute people, because those who love with Christ's Heart do not seek their own interests but the glory of the Father and the good of their neighbor alone." (29 April 2006 Benedictus)
