A Blessed Day, Even to the Fatherless

Hello, Coffee Talkers!

It is Trinity Sunday on the liturgical calendar, and also Father's Day to those of us in the USA (and some other places, I imagine). The alignment of these days is not coincidental to me. I consider it a beautiful reminder that we all share the same Father. This can be a special consolation to those among us who are 'fatherless' here on earth due to death, abandonment, abuse, or other sad circumstances. We can take heart, and gain confident hope in the knowledge that none of us are fatherless, spiritually.

Let us pray together in the words that Jesus taught us:

Our Father, Who art 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 those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Peace and all good,
