Christian song writer Mark Schultz composed this song. Here is a sampling of the lyrics:
In a sanctuary filled with silent prayer
And age to age
And heart to heart
Bound by grace and peace
Child of wonder
Child of God
I've remembered you
Recently, Maryellen Bell and Madelaine Nador decided that the parish of St. Paul’s should reach out to our members, not only for birthday and anniversary celebrations, but also, those who are sick or homebound and those who have endured a family tragedy, in other words, just to remember our members. When they visited me about this ministry I gave them my wholehearted support. Maryellen and Madelaine have begun gathering greeting cards and other information to initiate this ministry. Please support Maryellen and Madelaine in this ministry by offering suggestions concerning to whom “remembering” cards should be sent.
We seem to live such busy lives these days that we tend to forget about remembering others in the long term, especially in face of sadness and loss. We are good at the moment, but what about the following weeks and months. Some persons are really conscientious about such remembering, but most of us just tend to get on with our lives. It’s not that we do not care, we just forget. Perhaps knowledge of this new ministry will help all of us to remember.
When the color of a sunset fills the sky
When you pray and tears of joy
fall from your eyes
