Please be in prayer for the following youth who will be traveling to Ireland on July 24 – August 3:
Harrison Aberle, Nate Barman and Corey Naiser
As the youth travel to Ireland, they will experience many thin places — the places where the space between heaven and earth grows thin and we come close to God. Throughout each day, they will take time for prayer and reflection on where and how they have experienced God. The following is one of the prayers they will use:
As the light of the dawn awakens earth’s creatures
and stirs into song the birds of the morning
So may I be brought to life this day.
rising to see the light
to hear the wind
to smell the fragrance of what grows from the ground
to taste its fruit
and touch its textures
so may my inner senses be awakened to you
so may my inner senses be awakened to you, O God.

The Broadway family is excited for these three youth to grow in their relationship with God in this unique way. Stay tuned to hear about their trip in the September issue of the Broadway Beacon.
