Thank you Province IV Youth Ministry Network.
I had a great time learning about your ministries;
both your successes and your struggles.
This is most of the gang at the Bishop Gravatt Conference Center in South Carolina. The food was delicious, even the greens. I must admit I still haven't met a bowl grits that I could finish. The search continues.
Okay, next province, please . . .
Almighty and gracious Father, we give you thanks
for the fruits of the earth in their season
and for the labors of those who harvest them.
Make us, we pray, faithful stewards
of your great bounty, for the provision of our necessities
and the relief of all who are in need,
to the glory of your Name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever. Amen.
