Do you know what "Shalom" means? It means so many things. When you say "Shalom" to a person you are saying "Hello," but it also means, "May it be well with you," or "Peace." It's a lot like saying to one another, "The Peace of Christ be with You."
So, Shalom to you.

Many prayers were lifted in church on Sunday, for families in grief, persons in need of healing. Let us remember we do not always know what pain someone could be hiding. Please pray others as well as ourselves.

Blessings to you.
