"Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously… God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work" (2 Cor 9:6-9).

The future of Good News Ministries is at stake. Monthly donations are down because of the income losses of many supporters. At this rate, we'll only be able to bring you our services for three more months. So we have to trust God to take good care of us. We are all being tested for the sake of our faith growth.

    I would like permission to use a couple of the Reflections for Couples for an engaged couples weekend as a starting point with prayer and then couples discussion. We do this once a year and have between 4 and 10 couples. Our parish is small about 675 parishioners. Please let me know how I can print the reflections and if there would be a charge.

    Gratefully,
    Annette Eyrich
