Mary Best, Byrne Connally and Kathi Olechowski sat together following Friday’s World Day of Prayer service, which was held at First Baptist Church in Lexington. People in more than 170 countries and regions celebrated World Day of Prayer last Friday. The women of Chile wrote the service around the theme “How many loaves have you?” During this year’s service, worshipers were asked to respond to what we have and how we can share it with others. Worshipers were reminded to share bread and to receive the bread that is shared with us. Last Friday, members of the Lexington community came together in observance of this anual event, reaching out their hands and hearts to touch the lives of sisters and brothers in Chile and around the world.
A pot luck meal was served in the YAC (Youth Activity Center) at First Baptist after the service. Pictured above are Eloise Brademan and Carol Wuthrich, both of Lexington.
