We know that quite a few people at Epiphany are facing real hardship as a consequence of the sequestration of the federal budget that went into effect on Friday, March 1. With that in mind, we invite everyone, whether they are directly affected by sequestration or not, to a time of prayer and mutual support at 9:05 am on Sunday in the chapel.
“Heavenly Father, we remember before you those who suffer want and anxiety from lack of work. Guide the people of this land so to use our public and private wealth that all may find suitable and fulfilling employment, and receive just payment for their labor; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.” (Book of Common Prayer p. 824)
