Rector Search

As we continue in our search process, we share our Search Committee prayer for January-February 2020:

Gracious Father, from whom comes all good and perfect gifts, as we continue in our search for our next rector,continue to bestow your love and spiritual strength to our Search Committee, and to the parish of St. Edward’s during our time of reflection, self revelation and strengthened community. Send down your love to the Search Committee as they continue on their journey entrusted to them by St. Edward’s. Keep us unified on our course, imbue us with the spiritual strength  to stand strong and discern well, give us wisdom as we continue our work to bring  a new Rector to lead us forward in our mission. We pray for God’s continued blessing upon our Community, that the endurance he has given to all of us during our time of transition may lead us to a happy conclusion as we seek to do His will in all that we undertake, or do, or say. 

Let us all remember the words our Savior has taught us, and lift up our voices in His prayer: Our Father, who are in Heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, for ever and ever, AMEN.

Your St. Edward’s Search Committee,
