On our last Sunday before leaving, the community at St. John’s in West Seattle sent us forth with their prayers and their blessing. Daniel, Shelby, and I want to include the people of St. John’s in this journey. Their financial support has made the trip possible for us and their support and encouragement send us forth on the opportunity of a lifetime.
To further include the congregation in this experience, we collected their prayers on tiny slips of paper and we will take them with us to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. It is the custom at the Wailing Wall to take written prayers and place them between the stones. We will take the prayers of our congregation and we will remember them in prayer as we place them in the wall next week. - Kate
