When the rains burst forth yesterday afternoon on the second floor of St. Paul’s Commons, Echo Park.

O God, who by thy Son Jesus Christ hast promised to all those who seek thy kingdom and its righteousness all things necessary to sustain their life: we thank thee for sending us, in this time of our need, such moderate rain and showers, that we may receive the fruits of the earth, to our comfort and to thy honor; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

— Book of Common Prayer
