Happy Anniversary!

On Feb 14, Gateway and Florence Booth House celebrate their 17th anniversaries!

As we celebrate Valentine’s Day we also celebrate the histories of these two shelters.

Prayer
O God of love, we pray thee to give us love:
Love in our thinking, love in our speaking,
Love in our doing, and love in the hidden places of our souls;
Love of our neighbours near and far;
Love of our friends, old and new;
Love of those with whom we find it hard to bear,
And love of those who find it hard to bear with us;
Love of those with whom we work,
And love of those with whom we take our ease;
Love in joy, love in sorrow;
Love in life and love in death;
That so at length we may be worthy to dwell with thee,
Who art eternal love.

– William Temple, 1881-1944 (Archbishop of Canterbury 1942-44)
