Helping America's Most Vulnerable


for the week of June 29, 2015


Oh Great Mystery of Life we intentionally pause as we begin another week of work and opportunity.  With the leaving of some of our treasured VOA family, as they begin traveling a different road, we are reminded that change is a constant of life.  Some changes are of great joy, such as legislation that passed over the past few days and the change of having family and friends visit for the upcoming holiday, providing us with a much needed respite from the dailiness of life.  Other change is very difficult. Perhaps it is a change of staff or a change in roles and responsibility.  Perhaps it is the graduation of one of our children thus making adjustments in the family unit.  As change is a certainty of life, so may be the constant realization of your presence.  Help us, O Divine, to accept life in all its changes as we rise this day and journey this week.
