Shawnee Presbyterian Church





As I was opening my 2019 calendar to prepare for the new year, I remembered a challenge a friend of mine makes to himself and everyone around him. As you start a new calendar it not only time to plan ahead with regular schedules and maybe a new resolution or two, but also a time to frankly review the old calendar before you put it away to help you evaluate where you are in life and what you might want to change for the new year and beyond. It was with this thinking that I was reminded it was time for me to bring back a specific spiritual practice into my life. Each week I will spend time praying for you the people of Shawnee Presbyterian Church. I will do this prayer at 11:00am each Wednesday in the sanctuary as often as is possible. Even if I forget or get distracted the weekly test of our tornado sirens will certainly remind me of my obligation.

Here is where you can fit into this plan. If you have specific prayers you wish to be lifted for yourself or others please forward those to me by email, phone call, or US mail. I also wanted to share this prayer time with you to incorporate into your own life if you feel called to do so. If you choose to join me at the church that would be wonderful. It really doesn’t matter where you are as we are called to remember one another at the same time. Everyone participating will be reminded of this time of prayer as the sirens sound each Wednesday.

I share this with you not to show off my renewal of a spiritual practice, but instead as a challenge for each of us to grow in faith knowing that we are remembered by others. So where do I start? I could start by checking if Flint Walters or Lauren or Jacob Lewis left any cheerios this week or maybe by sitting where Dorothy Sexton sits every time she is able to join us for worship. This should be an exciting venture for me and hopefully for you.
