Dear Friends in Christ,

Over the summer, some of you may have missed our healing Sundays. Because of holiday weekends and church feasts and festivals, the first Sunday of the month does not always lend itself to the litany of healing and anointing (although you are always welcome at our Thursday evening services, held at 6:30pm in the Chapel throughout the year).

A scan of the calendar ahead shows that a move to the second Sunday of the month will allow for a more consistent offering of anointing and the laying on of hands during our principal parish service. So, starting in September, that is what we will do.

Looking forward to September 10th, I would like to share with you a reflection inspired by that sacred moment of laying on of hands, written by Joy Hendershot:

Hands

Hands of healing
Hands of praying
Hands for holding – hands for letting go
Hands of love – hands of sharing

Hands for feeding those to be fed
Hands for serving those to be served
Hands for uplifting those who are down
Hands for clothing those who have need

Soft hands – calloused hands
Young hands – veined hands
Open hands – giving hands
Comforting hands – welcoming hands

Brown hands – white hands
Hands of Christ
Your hands
My hands

Joy Hendershot
