Newsletter for June 6

From the rector: "I would welcome your thoughts about how we at Ascension can be part of healing and transformation in our city. What are the needs you see, from where you sit? What are your dreams for New York's healing and thriving? What should our priorities be as a community of faith, here on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 10th Street, witnessing to God's love for all?"
 
On Sunday, June 6, join us via Zoom for online worship at 11 a.m. as seek to "think those things that are right" and by God's merciful guiding may do them.

The Gift

Be still, my soul, and steadfast.
Earth and heaven both are still watching
though time is draining from the clock
and your walk, that was confident and quick,
has become slow.
 
So, be slow if you must, but let
the heart still play its true part.
Love still as once you loved, deeply
and without patience. Let God and the world
know you are grateful.
That the gift has been given.
