Let us pray:

Almighty God,  you have knit together your elect  in one communion and fellowship  in the mystical body of your Son Christ our Lord:  Give us grace so to follow your blessed saints  in all virtuous and godly living,  that we may come to those ineffable joys  you have prepared for those who truly love you;  through Jesus Christ our Lord,  who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,  one God, for ever and ever. Amen. (from the Book of Common Prayer)
Just a reminder, friends, that we will begin publishing Prayerscapes for Advent on Nov. 1 (they will be available in print in your local congregation before that date).  If you’d like to share the link with others, so that they may subscribe to Prayerscapes, point them to https://prayerscapes.wordpress.com at any time before Advent begins.  All subscribers receive the daily devotions created by the ministers of our region in the wee hours of each day throughout Advent, and then again during Lent.
