Prayer Book for Tom

 January 14, 2008

On Sunday, the congregation said a heartmoving farewell to young Tom Bernhofer as he is heading off to boot camp for the US Marines today.

Please keep him in your hearts and prayers, and don’t forget the prayer book, which is located in the glass box in the sanctuary [by the attendance book]. The directions for the prayer book are as follows: 1. chose a day or week in which to write an entry; 2. the entry can be a prayer, quote, words of wisdom, memory, even a cooking recipe [ Tom likes to cook.]. It’s farely simple. These entries will be periodically sent to Tom via email. We hope to fill in the whole year.
