Worship: From Afar

Circumstances sometimes prevent us from worshiping with our faith community: illness, travel, work, family concerns.  If possible, during the worship hour, imagine yourself there with your brothers and sisters.  Do the readings for the day, sing a hymn or three, pray God's blessing on each face you see in your mind's eye.  Pray for the concerns you know they all have. And pray for yourself as part of this vibrant worshiping community.  Give God thanks for the grace of needing and wanting each other's presence, and for the spiritual community we feel, no matter how far separated we are..
