Autumn Prayer

Comfort Me in Suffering
Loving God, I pray that you will comfort me in my suffering, lend skill to the hands of my healers, and bless the means used for my cure. Give me such confidence in the power of your grace, that even when I am afraid, I may put my whole trust in you; through our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Blessed Assurance
Fanny Crosby (1873).

Daikon Radish
Daikon, (“great root” Jp), Raphanus sativus L. var. longipinnatus Bailey, brassica family, is a mild-flavored winter radish usually characterized by fast-growing leaves and a long, white, napiform root.
This summer, I am turning out an excellent healthy crop of Daikon. It is a large versatile crop used for root and green top harvest; eaten raw or prepared in various ways.
This harvested member of the brassica family is best known for its anti-inflammatory effects after it is eaten raw or prepared in various healthy ways.
Today, We prepare the Daikon we freshly harvest by slicing it into suitable French fry pieces and cooking it in coconut oil; air frying would be another excellent possibility.
It has a taste quite similar to a French fry along with a mild peppery taste for our culinary selected cultivar.
We use the fresh Daikon tops in a tossed salad with fresh garden heirloom tomatoes, carrots, red pepper slices and balsam vinegarette dressing.
We steam red beans, kohlrabi, and ripe black olives to accompany our Daikon.
We prepare a mix of fresh apple, cherry, raspberry and pear sauce for dessert, with mild green tea.

Got Daikon Culinary Experience

  • Art of Mindfulness
    At Fellowship today we discuss the Art of Mindfulness. Mindfulness is described as the state of being aware of something or
    a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, as a therapeutic technique.
    We present mindfulness technique, role play and practice its applications, and visit over the experience and its value in our daily lives.

Autumn Closing Prayer:

When I must go, dear God, please let it be, A golden autumn day; when red leaves fall,
When purple grapes in shining clusters hang, And bittersweet glows bright against the wall,
When o’er the barren fields and russet meads, Their last farewells the crickets cry.
Let me make my silent journey, When the homing birds fly south across the sky.
When I must go, dear God, please let me go, As silently as autumn rain,
As still as lacy shadows ‘neath the willow trees, As calm as is the moon above the hill.
So let me go, and may there be no grief, When life is done and I must say goodbye.
I will take my leave with flowers and falling leaf, And lie in peaceful sleep beneath the sky.

People of all ages chose the color of their pre-rolled rocket fuselage, rolled their own, selected personal creative colors and designs for fins and nose cones. Over one hundred personalized rockets were designed, built and launched; with many great performers flying over the fence!
