NEIGHBORHOOD PRAYER WALKS
The Search Committee would like to invite the you to participate in a neighborhood prayer walk. This is a way of gathering God’s guidance for St. Paul’s during this discernment period. We will gather as a group in the church, say a prayer, and then go out in small groups to prayerfully observe our neighborhood. We’ll reconvene back at the church and record our observations. All are welcome to attend.
Organized prayer walks will be held on Wednesday, October 10 @ 6:30pm and Sunday, October 14 following coffee hour. Or you may do your own prayer walk at your leisure—we will provide you all the needed instructions. Just make sure to submit your observations to the Search Committee. Contact us for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.

PRAYERS FOR ST. PAUL’S DURING THE TRANSITION AND RECTOR SEARCH
As you read the Eblast each week, it is a good opportunity to take 30 seconds and offer a prayer for St. Paul’s during its transition and for the members of the Search Committee. Prayers to that effect will be included each week in the Eblast.
For St. Paul’s:
O God, by whom the meek are guided in judgment, and light riseth up in darkness for the godly: Grant us, we beseech thee, in all our doubts and uncertainties, the grace to ask what thou wouldest have us to do, that the Spirit of wisdom may save us from all false choices, and that in thy light we may see light, and in thy straight path may not stumble; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
For the Search Committee:
Eternal God, the foundation of all wisdom and the source of all courage: enlighten with your grace the Search Committee of this congregation, and so rule their minds, and guide their counsel that in all things they may seek your glory and promote the mission of your Church, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
