Greetings St. Luke’s, friends and family!
As much rest as we're getting and as much fun as we're having at the beach this week (that's Cooper's Beach in the photo), I look forward to being back with you all on Sunday. August is a popular month for vacationing and I know many of you will be traveling, if you aren't already. Our own Deb Thoet will be away from the office for the next couple of weeks and she's done a great job setting me up to fly solo.
Smack dab in the middle of summer - whether you're standing at the grill, sitting on your porch or laying on the beach - I offer you this prayer:
For the Good Use of Leisure
O God, in the course of this busy life, give us times of refreshment and peace; and grant that we may so use our leisure to rebuild our bodies and renew our minds, that our spirits may be opened to the goodness of your creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
