Sunday Afternoons

This morning at church, Dr. Bob spoke about the fading tradition of Sunday afternoon supper. He remembered that growing up, Sunday afternoons at his house implied a big meal, guaranteed time with family and general fellowship around his house. He compared the Sunday supper to communion, and it struck a cord with me. This morning's sermon inspires tonight's prayer.

Dear God,
Thank you for our church and for Dr. Bob. Thank you that we feel at home there and that we have a community there. God, I pray tonight that you help us develop traditions in our home that give Caroline a sense of Christian values, of old American values. God please restore those values to our culture so that Caroline grows up in a country of people who care for each other, who believe in something.
