"Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep." (Romans 12:15)
It is with joy that we report the birth of Martha Rosina Hunter, daughter of the Reverends Paul and Christina Hunter and granddaughter of the Reverends Kenneth and Vicki Hunter. Martha arrived at 10:22 p.m. on Thursday, May 5th. She weighed 9 lbs. 4 oz. and was 19 inches long. Mom, Dad, and Martha are all doing well.
O God, you have taught us through your blessed Son that whoever receives a little child in the name of Christ receives Christ himself: We give thanks for the blessing you have bestowed upon Paul, Christina, Kenneth and Vicki in giving them Martha. Confirm their joy by a lively sense of your presence with them, and give them calm strength and patient wisdom as they seek to bring this child to love all that is true and noble, just and pure, lovable and gracious, excellent and admirable, following the example of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
