In His hands

The closing Eucharist of the Global Episcopal Mission Network (GEMN) was held on Saturday, May 5th. The Rt. Rev. Gordon P. Scruton was the celebrant.  During the offertory he stood before us and said, “we will have an offering today,” and he cupped his hands together, and everyone laughed.

He then said, “I don’t want your money.

I want you to give of yourself, your body, your mind, your Spirit.”  He then walked down the isle with his hand in front of him collecting what we had to offer.  As he walked back to the altar it seems as though his hands were overflowing, heavy in a new way.  When he lifted them up-offering what he had collected, into God’s “hands” it was powerful. My soul was touched and I was moved.
