The past few Wednesdays we’ve been holding Wednesday Wake Up Morning Prayer on Pasadena Beach, just down the road from St David’s Church. With masks still required indoors and indoor fellowship after worship something we aren’t able to do with current covid restrictions, we decided it would be nice to have an opportunity to worship safely outdoors and enjoy coffee hour safely afterwards.
Our first gathering was before the time change and we gathered at sunrise (8:09 AM). After time change, we decided to stick with the same time (8:10, actually).
We’ve had a little fire, thanks to Ron Day, aided by Cecil Anderson, and refreshments provided by Jennifer Day.
We say Morning Prayer, have a brief reflection, and then enjoy some fellowship time together in this beautiful place.
We don’t know how many more weeks the temperatures will allow us to gather, but we will check the forecast again next Tuesday and see if we can do it again before the snow comes or the temperatures plunge. In the meantime, we’re grateful for this lovely time of prayer and fellowship. To those who follow recorded Morning Prayer, we’ll keep trying for Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, and Wednesdays when we can’t have morning prayer in person.
Wherever you may be, we hope you have a way to begin your day with a reminder of the beauty of God’s world, in nature and in people, and in the gift of prayer.
