World Day of Prayer ........

What a privilege it was for me to attend the World Day of Prayer service at St. Peter's Anglican Church this afternoon.

The service was written by the World Day of Prayer Committee of Chile and was a wonderful reminder to all in attendance of the importance of bread; the making, the breaking and the sharing of bread.

Here in Elliot Lake bread is something we take for granted.  If we run short, no problem .. we simply run to the food store and buy another loaf.

How easy it is to forget how difficult that acquisition may be in other countries around the world.

The theme of today's celebration was "How Many Loaves Have You?"

The World Day of Prayer was begun by women in Canada and the United States in 1922 and is observed in more than 170 countries today. 

The  2010 World Day of Prayer Grant recipients live in Kenya, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Lesotho, Cameroon, Switzerland, Papua New Guinea, Thailand, India, Banbgladesh, Pakistan, Trinidad & Tobago, Guyana, Nicaragua, Haiti as well as New York City and different associations throughout Canada.

Today I felt privileged to be part of this international celebration.
