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

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.

Message: “Love One Another”

I know that I have life only insofar as I have love.
I have no love except it come from Thee.
Help me, please, to carry this candle against the wind."
~ Wendell Berry

Question for Reflection
In Acts 11:1–18, Peter, led by the Spirit, discloses God’s new directions to heal creation, and the church reconfigures its social boundaries. The Gentiles, who were excluded from the church in Jerusalem because their eating habits were judged to be vile and unclean, are now included by the reconciling work of the Spirit. Where is God’s Spirit opening us to new directions in mission this day?

Morning Household Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ,
as you met your disciples just after daybreak on the beach,
meet us at the dawning of this new day.
As you filled their nets with fish,
fill our lives with love and grace,
more than we can ask or imagine.
In your holy name we pray. Amen.
