"[Elijah] cried out to the Lord,
'O Lord my God,
let this child's life
come into him again.'
The Lord listened
to the voice of Elijah;
the life of the child
came into him again,
and he revived."
1 Kings 17:20-22
O God, from whom all good doth come:
Grant that by thy inspiration we may think those things that are right,
and by thy merciful guiding may perform the same; through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever

To All Saints friends,

You may have heard that someone broke into our storage shed last Saturday night and stole our lawnmowers.  In an effort to stay within our budget, we are asking if anyone has a mower they are not using and might be willing to donate to the church. If you can help us out, please call Junior Warden Judy Clark 605-670-8141.   Thank you!  
M & M’s and Matzos.

On June 12 the Sunday School students will be offering tours of the Godly Play room after the service. It is the way we close the sunday school for the summer break.

Prayer for the Earth
I have come to terms with the future.
From this day onward I will walk easy on the earth.
Plant trees. Kill no living things.
Live in harmony with all creatures.
I will restore the earth where I am.
Use no more of its resources than I need.
And listen, listen to what it is telling me.

 from Earth Prayers from around the World
