Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.

With Thanks

We were scheduled to meet at 8 a.m. this morning to begin packing Thanksgiving meals for delivery to 262 Camden County residents. By 8:11 more than 20 people were busily packing meals and more food and people kept coming in. The meals started heading out at 9:15 and were all delivered by 10:30 a.m. Thanks to June, Kristen, Austin and a group of helpers too large to name.








Almighty and gracious Father, we give you thanks for the fruits of the earth in their season and for the labors of those who harvest them. Make us, we pray, faithful stewards of your great bounty, for the provision of our necessities and the relief of all who are in need, to the glory of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
