Thoughts …. for Pentecost
African Proverb, Ghana "If you want to speak to God, tell it to the wind."

Catherine the Great, 18th century "A great wind is blowing, and that gives you either imagination or a headache."

Ralph Waldo Emerson, 19th century "This time, like all times, is a very good one if we but know what to do with it."

A Prayer for Mothers
Heavenly Father,
We give thanks to You for mothers everywhere.
We give thanks for their love, care, concern, and compassion.
We lift up to You especially those who have struggled in their roles as mothers,
Where the path has not been smooth.
We pray for those whose mothers perhaps failed in any way.
Bring hope in the midst of their lives,
Whether as mothers or as children.
For those relationships that are strained, grant reconciliation.
Where there is pain, bring the healing of Your grace and mercy.
May our own hearts of love extend to all mothers everywhere;
Through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord,
Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
One God now and forever.
Amen

We commit to learning, proclaiming and living the love of God.

Message: “A Heart for Honduras”
Access the May 1 Worship Bulletin HERE!
Honduras is a largely mountainous, sparsely populated country at the hub of Central America. Once the center of the Mayan empire, Columbus landed there on his fourth voyage, in 1502, and named the region Honduras (“in the depths”), perhaps impressed by ridge after rolling ridge of pine-covered mountains. During the 20th century, when the military did not actually hold direct power in Honduras, they often had huge indirect power. Nevertheless, important social reforms began in 1954 with a national strike, more social reforms followed in the 1960s, and land reform came in the 1970s (with military support). Democracy returned in 1982, and in the 1990s the military influence in civilian government was greatly curbed. In recent years the weakness of public institutions has become evident as they struggle to respond effectively to pre-sent-day challenges, including the growing demands of a populace em-powered by democracy. Although the per capita income of Honduras is one of the lowest in Latin America, it has improved slightly in recent decades. The PC(USA)’s partner church in Honduras, the Presbyterian Church in Honduras, is just 50 years old and was founded by missionaries from the National Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Guatemala. The Guatemalan church was founded in 1882 by Presbyterian missionaries from the United States.
