Jesus, help me to honor you in all that I do.
Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: "Hosanna to the Son of David! 'Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD!' Hosanna in the highest!" (Matthew 21:9)
Jesus, thank you for coming into my life and giving me hope.
And when he had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, "Who is this?" (Matthew 21:10)
Holy Spirit, move the people of Schenectady and all the communities of this diocese to ask, "Who is this?"
So the multitudes said, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee." (Matthew 21:11)
Father, help us know Jesus more and more each day and week by week. Thank you
A word received: I AM your provider.
Monday: 1, 2, 3 * 4, 7; Amos 2:6-16: 2 Pet. 1:1-11: Matt. 21:1-11

Notes from the Front Line
Daily: For our Bishop and for Christ the King Spiritual Life Center
December 2 Bishop William Love
***** Dear partners in prayer, Welcome to Advent! By the time people receive this on 2 December, I anticipate being on my way to Belize again. This week's selective overview:
1) Our Thanksgiving was good in its own way, though we missed our family members in Illinois. Hope yours was good.
2) I have been leading services over the past few days, as well as working on course matters and preparing with Julie for family gatherings at the end of December.
3) For a relatively low cost per month, I have worked out a new telecommunications network arrangement with Julie for when I travel internationally and not near a computer.
4) The problems that may be associated with the new Yahoo security measure changes may be clearing up. I am still getting some email arrival delays, but more emails seem to be arriving in a much more timely manner.
1) Pray for my visit in the Diocese of Belize this week. Pray for our family members while I am away.
1a) Pray that lives would be touched at the clergy retreat that Bishop Philip and I are leading.
1b) Pray for the planning of additional upcoming visits: end of January and first week in Lent.
1c) Please pray for my role as Examining Chaplain for people in the ordination process and the ordination process itself, that the Holy Trinity would accomplish what He would like done.
2) Continuing prayer in good times and lean times, that the Holy Spirit would guide: faculty, family, finances, plans, programs, and dioceses.
3) Prayer for additional upcoming parish visits and the presentation at the mission day in March.
In Christ, Shaw+, and on behalf of Julie+ I pray for you, everyday.

***** Healing Service at Christ the King
The guest preacher at the Service of Healing at Christ the King Spiritual Life Center on Tuesday, December 3rd will be the Right Reverend Daniel Herzog, Chaplain of Christ the King and Director of Healing Ministries and Spiritual Formation. Bishop Dan has been involved in the ministry of healing and teaching for over forty years. He firmly believes that the Lord continues to touch and transform lives by the power of the Holy Spirit, the spiritual gifts enumerated in the New Testament, the Sacraments of Christ Jesus (especially the Eucharist, Anointing and Reconciliation), the steady nurture of the Word of God, and love. His overarching vision is to see everyone transformed from being religious consumers to serving as spiritual providers through the love of Jesus, the power of the Spirit and the promise of the Scriptures. The Healing service begins at 10 a.m. Opportunity for individual prayer ministry occurs at the end of the service. Lunch is available for purchase in the dining room of the Welcome Center afterwards.
