It Has Been Awhile – WV here come the PVs!

It has been awhile since the PVs have been in action, but starting Sunday a group will be heading to Wyoming County, West Virginia. There have been a lot of changes over the last several months with the PVs, but the desire to reach out help is still holding strong!

Nine brave and “seasoned” PVs will be spending the week in Wyoming County in the first all volunteer led week. With the former staff helping to organize the week, and help from local people on the ground, they will continue in the PV tradition of service, community and reflection. They will be staying at Mullens United Methodist Church where the group stayed last year and be working in the county in collaboration with St. Vincent dePaul. We will be touching base each day and post about what they are up to. We hope you join along too!

Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful Thanksgiving full of peace, gratitude and love. –Jill and Jenny

A Thanksgiving Blessing
by Joyce Rupp

May an abundance of gratitude burst forth
as you reflect upon what you have received.

May thanksgiving overflow in your heart,
and often be proclaimed in your prayer.

May you gather around the table of your heart
the ardent faithfulness, kindness, and goodness
of each person who is true to you.

May the harvest of your good actions
bring forth plentiful fruit each day.

May you discover a cache of hidden wisdom
among the people and events
that have brought you distress and sorrow.

May your basket of blessings surprise you
with its rich diversity of gifts
and its opportunities for growth.

May all that nourishes and resources your life
bring you daily satisfaction and renewed hope.

May you slow your hurried pace of life
so you can be aware of, and enjoy,
what you too easily take for granted.

May you always be open, willing,
and ready to share your blessings with others.

May you never forget the Generous One
who loves you lavishly and unconditionally.
