We pray that you are all having an opportunity to enjoy the summer months and are able to rest and find refreshment.  Even if it is just a few minutes a day we hope you can find an opportunity to rest in the presence of God. Perhaps you can take a few minutes to read the daily office or pray for fellow Christians around our diocese and beyond.  On your porch, beside a lake, in the woods, or just in the comfort of your home – spend time with Jesus.  Click here to learn about daily diocesan reading and prayer prompts.
