WE REMEMBER THOSE AFFECTED BY AUTISM 
SUNDAY APRIL 29th at our 8AM and 10:45AM worship services. 

Why will we explore the intersection of faith and Autism?
Autism now affects 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys. Chances are someone you know has autism or is the parent of an autistic child. Our Sunday worship, for what is known as Good Shepherd Sunday, help guide us as we or those we love face such challenges.

Consider the opening words of confession for this coming Sunday:
Faithful and just God,
we confess that we are captive to doubt and fear,
bound by the ways that lead to death.
We have not loved our sisters and brothers
as you have first loved us.
Forgive us, God of mercy.
Let your Holy Spirit work in us
to change our lives and make us new,
that we may know the abundant life
given in Jesus Christ, our risen Lord.
Amen.

It is not uncommon for the parents of autistic children to experience doubt and fear, loneliness and isolation. Are we equipped as people of faith to offer in words and deeds the hope and strength we claim as people of God?

Consider the words of our Prayer of the Day:
God of all power, you called from death our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep. Send us as shepherds to rescue the lost, to heal the injured, and to feed one another with knowledge and understanding; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

And let us all say "AMEN!"
