I hope and pray that our beloved Church Geek, who was kind enough to invite me to her tiny Oakland flat for a party years ago when I lived in northern California years ago is alive and safe.

From today's Telegraph:

"A gunman went on a drive-by shooting rampage in a Santa Barbara student enclave and at least seven people were killed, including the attacker.

Investigators in the United States believe a gunman driving a black BMW acted alone in the shootings late on Friday night near the University of California, Santa Barbara."

Praying for you, CG!

[Votive] for all who need prayers, and especially those affected by the shooting in California, for the souls of the victims, and those of the yachtsmen in the Atlantic.

CG is probably OK then; the lone gunman was shot and killed by a SB Sheriff's deputy.

Thank you folks for praying--I have a doctor's appointment on Friday and hopefully I will be told it's not something we have to investigate further, please God... and if worse comes to worst, I will probably be referred to a different surgeon than the one who did the last two unsuccessful repairs.

Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. [Votive]

I've often asked for prayer about a member of my staff who has been repeatedly disciplined. It has all come to a head and he has now been suspended and is likely to be dismissed. While this is a relief in some ways because it's all beeen dragging on so long, his sudden disappereance is going to put a terrible strain on his colleagues- particularly the rest of my team. We are just getting into some work that will now have to be delayed and inconvenience people. Please would you pray for my team to be able to cope with their workload, for patience and understand from our customers and for my boss to stop believing that I can do three things at once whilst whistling the National Anthem? [Help]

Could I ask for you prayers tomorrow? I have my first baby funeral (Joseph David). I always get somewhat emotionally invested in funerals, but this one is proving to be something else. I was almost in tears just writing the homily. God knows how I'll be tomorrow preaching and presiding.
