Spirit Enjoys Its Volunteers!

This is a very engaging activity! Spirit of Peace Ministers enjoy engaging the Missional Community! Valley Days can be challenging but satisfying. We took on all interested people, numbering well over one hundred, over the afternoon hours. We served a lunch of Crafted Angus and Sirloin quarter pound burgers, Natural Bratwurst sausages, Quarter pound beef hot dogs, homemade cabbage and carrot slaw and Southern style potato salad, Fresh garden mint sun tea; and

Ta-Da! well over one hundred vanilla, chocolate, chocolate chip sundaes with various fresh fruit, nut and other toppings! were served.

There was concurrent Rocket Design, Build and Launch going on. 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!

Fellowship is our strong suit. We enjoy community engagement! Our volunteers are caring and concerned. We appreciate everyone who stopped by to engage or observe! We look forward to visiting again!

Bat House Fun

Bats are God’s creatures sent to us in order to assist in maintaining a safe environment with fewer disease carrying mosquitoes. One bat feeds on many mosquitoes in one night. During our waking daylight hours, bats need a restful, comfortable, safe home for rest and relaxation. We will Design, Build and Launch this Project!

Opening Prayer 

I arise today Through the strength of heaven; Light of the sun, Splendor of fire, Speed of lightning, Swiftness of the wind, Depth of the sea, Stability of the earth, Firmness of the rock. 
I arise today Through God's strength to pilot me; God's might to uphold me, God's wisdom to guide me, God's eye to look before me, God's ear to hear me, God's word to speak for me, God's hand to guard me, God's way to lie before me, God's shield to protect me, God's hosts to save me Afar and anear, Alone or in a multitude.
Christ shield me today Against wounding Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in the eye that sees me, Christ in the ear that hears me.
I arise today Through the mighty strength Of the Lord of creation.

Message 

Saint Patrick 

Today we all remember Patrick, Missionary to Ireland

Patrick is one of the best-known of the missionary saints. Born to a Christian family in Britain around the year 389, he was captured as a teenager by raiders, taken to Ireland, and forced to serve as a herdsman. After six years he escaped and found his way to a monastery community in France. Ordained a bishop in 432, he made his way back to Ireland, where he spent the rest of his long life spreading the Gospel and organizing Christian communities. He strongly defended the doctrine of the Holy Trinity in a time when it was not popular to do so. His literary legacy includes his autobiography, Confession, and several prayers and hymns still used in the church today. Patrick died around the year 466. 

There are times when God calls upon each of us to be attentive to the needs of our brothers and sisters, all people, with special concerns, in the Missional Community. It is our responsibility to engage and follow the call. 

Nutrition Presentation 

March is Natural Health Month 

St. Patrick’s Day comes along mid March. Wherever and whenever we should aspire to make informed food best choices and continue to develop and share best eating and physical activity choices. Our theme is “Savor the Flavor of Eating Right.” We will savor some healthy flavors this St. Patrick’s Day. 

Healthy St. Patrick’s Day tips

Be festive with Green:

Add more dark greens to your salad, such as baby kale, spinach, romaine and green leaf lettuce, green peppers, cucumbers, etc.

Be inspired to Go Green with your side dishes. Try Brussels sprouts, broccoli, edamame or green beans.

Pistachios and pepitas. Sprinkle on entrees, side dishes and salads.

Green tea is a good way to warm up and get antioxidants at the same time.

Sweeten up that fruit salad with kiwi and green grapes

Spinach. Add to your fruit smoothie to add extra fiber and iron.

More colors of the rainbow food possibilities: 

Red – watermelon, apples, tomatoes, strawberries. 

Blue/purple – blueberries, eggplant, grapes, red onion, blackberries  

Yellow – banana, pear, pineapple  

Orange – clementine, mangos, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe  

White – cauliflower, mushrooms, garlic

Closing Prayer 

Saint Patrick, Ireland 

May the Strength of God pilot us. 
May the Power of God preserve us.
May the Wisdom of God instruct us.
May the Hand of God protect us.
May the Way of God direct us.
May the Shield of God defend us.
May the Host of God guard us
Against the snares of the evil ones,
Against temptations of the world.
May Christ be with us!
May Christ be before us!
May Christ be in us,
Christ be over all!
May Thy Salvation, Lord,
Always be ours,
This day, O Lord, and evermore. Amen.
