Morning Collect for Saturday

Almighty God, who after the creation of the world rested from all your works and sanctified a day of rest for all your ceatures: Grant that we, putting away all earthly anxieties, may be duly prepared for the service of your sanctuary, and that our rest here upon earth may be a preparation for the eternal rest promised to your people in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

(BCP 99)

Penny, I've been following your blog for the past few weeks now and wanted you to know how much I enjoy the prayers and Scriptures you post and all of your photos. Love this one of the stained glass windows. Just beautiful! Is this in your church? Thank you for sharing.

In His Grace,
Thanks, Rich!

Michelle, thank you, too. I'm always glad to hear from readers that they enjoy the blog. I enjoy doing it! This is not my church - I have worked for the last year and a half as a supply priest in more than 20 churches in the Atlanta area, and this is the chapel at one of them. I think it's lovely, too.
