Congregational Care Report

January 11, 2018

Affirmation of the week:  When life gets bumpy, I find Peace as I fall back on Spiritual Truth allowing myself to relax into the essence of my being.

 

We hold Lacy Baker and her family in Love and Light as Lacy recovers from a hospitalization for a respiratory infection.  We know that God’s healing power indwells every cell and fiber of Lacy’s body and are grateful she is doing so much better.

 

We know Peace, Grace, and Strength for Cindy Evitt and her parents Darrel and Nita Evitt as Darrel is under hospice care.  We know that wholeness takes many forms and we are grateful for Spirit as this family walks through this journey of life.

 

We hold the family of Patricia Beeson in Love and Light as they acknowledged her transition to Spirit on Saturday, January 6 at 2:00PM at UCOP .  Patricia passed on Sunday, December 31 and had been ill for the past year. She has been a devoted supporter of UCOP in years past.  She will be missed.

 

We affirm Jim Barnett’s wholeness as he recovers from pneumonia and the flu for which he was hospitalized.  He is home now, doing much better. We know the Strength of Christ indwells both Jim and his wife Janet as they walk their path together.

 

We are grateful to Deb Filby and Cindy Jensen for the loving, conscientious care with which they repacked all of our UCOP Christmas decorations.  Knowing they may be appearing in a completely different setting next year, each box was carefully packed and labeled so as to make next year’s Hanging of the Greens another time of joy and anticipation for the holidays for all of us.  Thank you!

 

We know Peace and Grace for Bob and Patricia Darpel,the grandparents of Tara Dale, as Patricia is in the hospital in Kentucky.  We see all caregivers divinely guided and strength for Bob and the family as they seek to support Patricia in her final days.

 

We see Wade Belden’s shoulder surgery going perfectly as each healthcare provider is fully engaged in his care.  We know Strength for Jan Chapman who will be assisting him post-op and we hold the Truth of Wholeness as we envision a complete recovery.

 

Ruth Stephan is looking for a ride to church from the Leawood area.  If you are willing, and have space for a wheelchair, you can reach Ruth at ruththeharpist@aol.com.

 

We continue to see Peace, Ease, and Grace surrounding Shirley Hill’s sister Loretta, as she is still in hospice but doing better. We see divine order as her family seeks the perfect path for her continued care. We know the love and light of God surrounds them all.

 

Just a reminder: Our coat drive will continue through February 28th.  If you have a coat to donate, you can still do that or if you or anyone you know needs a coat they are here to be picked up during church hours.

 

We hold each congregant and every visitor who comes through the doors of our ministry in Love and Light as we see the wholeness of each, and behold the Christ as everyone.   We are Peace, and we call it forth in all situations around the globe.
