July 13

Good morning from Camp Hardtner. We are in the Kisatchie National Forest. When George Flynn was a member of the Permanent Staff at Hardtner, he and some friends wrote what is now called Kisatchie Morning Prayer. Here is one of the prayers…

Officiant: We pray for the gift of the Kisatchie Forrest.
People: So that we may all revel in its abundance.

Officiant: We pray for the Hardtner family.
People: May their gift keep on giving.

Officiant: We pray for Lake Bordelon and the Three Sisters.
People: May their waters be purified by your hand.

Officiant: We pray for the hallowed crosses at the gates.
People: So that they may forever mark a sanctuary from a troubled world.

Officiant: We pray for all those who have ever felt the love of Camp Hardtner.
People: So that we may continue to stand on the shoulders of giants, and lay the ground for those yet to come.


Since Rita+ and Whit+ are at camp, please join Mother Dawnell Stodghill for Holy Eucharist today at St. Alban’s at 12:10 a.m. or tonight for Holy Eucharist and Class at St. Andrew’s, Mer Rouge at 5:30 p.m. We will learn more about, and celebrate tomorrow’s saint - Argula von Grumbach, Scholar and Church Reformer, who died, c. 1554.
