Cycling for Change; and everyone who touches my life. Lord, help us to care for those we encounter and apply the serenity prayer to: accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Birthdays: Fr. Ed Poehlmann (7/4), Danielle Lay (7/7), Dave Larson (7/9), Kathleen Angel (7/10), Katie (Norton) Frodl (7/10), Ryan Beck (7/11), Anniversary: John & Maggie Lay (7/11 -- 1st Anniversary)
Keeping-in-touch: While friends and family bake in the eastern part of the country, we have enjoyed rainy days and wonderful 9th innings of baseball!! Our participation in the Cycling for Change Events in Denver provided experiences we will remember for many days. We're celebrating Matthew's opportunity to teach and coach at the high school he attended, Broomfield High School. And we're bemoaning the quick passing of summer: it's already All Star Week so the summer's half over.
The Readings: Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Comments on the readings: Fr. Foley: "This is not too mysterious or remote. Start now. Become what you were made to be. It is written within you."
My Comments: I have no great insights other than "the law is written on our hearts" and "our neighbor is the person we encounter."
May the peace of Christ be with each of you.
