DINNER BY CANDLELIGHT BOOK LAUNCH PARTY
Friday, October 20
7:00 p.m. in the Gallery
As we get older, there are challenges as we prepare for Christmas: elderly parents, adult children out of town or loss of relationships. Mentor United Methodist Women is sponsoring an evening with author Kevin Louise Schaner as she launches her Advent devotional Dinner by Candlelight: Comfort and Joy for Advent. This book of twenty-nine essays offers a renewed sense of Hope, Love, Joy and Peace as we consider that even though how we celebrate Christmas may change, the Joy of Christ is the same.
A retired Mentor Public Schools librarian, Kevin is a writer and a speaker. She has traveled to five continents with Volunteer in Mission teams with the United Methodist Church (including trips to Camphor Mission Station, Liberia) and has also been a part of several Ubuntu Journey mission trips with United Methodist Women.
Join us for an inspirational evening as Kevin shares some of her story behind the book and reads a few selections. Light refreshments will be served, and there will be a chance to meet and greet Kevin. This event is free and open to all. Dinner by Candlelight books will be available for purchase ($12 cash or check), and Kevin will be available to sign copies.
Please RSVP to Carole Ring at email@example.com or 440-255-7213 by October 17.
Prayer focus for October: those affected by disasters
As a result of disasters in recent weeks many have lost homes, loved ones, jobs, and personal property. In many cases there has been a disruption in the basic needs of people, medical care, businesses, family life, schools, and utilities and services. First responders and those providing relief are stretched, working long hours, dealing with their own losses and the loss of those they are trying to help.
Pray: (just some brief guiding thoughts of how to pray; and be sure to seek The Holy Spirit’s help in your praying)
• Give strength and endurance for the relief workers
• Provide healing, help and hope for those who have suffered loss
• Lead clergy and counsellors in knowing how to handle all the overwhelming hurts they will have to deal with (wisdom)
• Keep us from apathy when we hear of yet another disaster
• Show us what our response needs to be
• Thank the Lord that in times of pain and suffering God gives grace and strength to persevere
Hurricane season is not over. Earthquakes are unpredictable. Storms and fires can break out at any time. So, in other words, pray without ceasing!
- Nancy Landerholm
Psalm 121:1. “I lift up my eyes to the hills—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”
