This morning we welcome the Rev. Jeremy Means-Koss as our preacher and deacon. Jeremy was recently ordained to the transitional diaconate, sponsored by Grace, and he and his husband Brendan are also members of Grace. Jeremy will be serving as deacon this summer for our online worship services in English.
O Lord, mercifully receive the prayers of your people who call upon you, and grant that they may know and understand what things they ought to do, and also may have grace and power faithfully to accomplish them; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
