O God, the source of eternal light: Shed forth your unending day upon us who watch for you, that our lips may praise you, our lives may bless you, and our worship on the morrow give you glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

— Book of Common Prayer

I also had the privilege of presiding at his baptism at St John Chrysostom Church. Canon Kathy Hannigan O’Connor and Loreen Guilford were his presenters today. D.J. Gomer and Duane Gomer were proud grandparents. Photo by Canon for Common Life Bob Williams
