Continue in Prayer Together

Last month the focus was on beginning with prayer – beginning the year and beginning each day on our knees in private communion with the Living God above.

Begin with Prayer

I grew up in a Christian home (for which I am very thankful to God), with par-ents who insisted (rightly so) that we always pray before we eat. It is an in-grained habit (which is good) that makes it virtually impossible to start eating if I haven’t prayed. To borrow from the title of a…

My grandkids and the Sweeneys helped with stacking all the chairs and setting up tables on Labor…
