.time to make halloween costumes!

one of my absolute most favorite activities of the whole year.
i'm so serious.

so far on my docket:

a rapunzel in a blue dress with a princess-crown-hat and flowers in her hair

a pink bunny

an orange monster that has three eyes or maybe ten and is ALL ORANGE, EMILY!

a high-speed shark. not to be confused with a low-speed shark. but which will not show off its high speed with a jet pack because sharks don't wear jet packs and anyway the flames would go out underwater...

and possibly a pink princess, or a pink giraffe, or a pink giraffe-princess, or none of the above because we're two and our glares could freeze lava so don't ask me what i want to be for halloween.

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
