Mother Teresa quote help othersMany waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.” (Song of Solomon 8:7): In response to catastrophic flooding in Baton Rouge and along the Gulf Coast, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance has deployed an immediate response team, and begun to organize a long-term response in affected communities. Congregations in South Louisiana have offered to host and supervise clean-up work teams. Financial support for all the efforts can be designated to DR00191. Gifts  can be made online, by phone at 1-800-872-3283, or by check: you can give a check through this church, or mail it to Presbyterian Church USA, PO Box 643700, Pittsburgh, PA 15264-3700.

A New Look at Prayer

Touchable God coverOur administrative assistant Jeanette Levellie has just released her fourth book, Touchable God: Finding the Lord’s Friendship Through Prayer. From the back cover:

“Every Christian longs for an intimate walk with the Lord, talking openly with their Heavenly Father and hearing from Him. Touchable God addresses this longing, helping you find a joy-filled relationship with the Lord instead of a joyless religion. In Section I Jeanette shares stories from her own journey in prayer. Written in her warm and casual style, these candid glimpses into Jeanette’s tests and trials will help you believe the Lord’s willingness to be involved in every area of your life. Section II consists of Jeanette’s bold, often poetic prayers for friends in crisis. You need answers, and the Scripturally-based prayers will help you approach God’s throne to find them. Touchable God gives caring friends, family members, and ministry leaders specific prayers for others’ needs and guides you in praying for yourself during crises.”
