Missionaries Scott and Lisa Boyd were the guest speakers at the March 1 World Day of Prayer in Fox Chapel.

Themed “Come — Everything is Ready,” the event was hosted by Good Shepherd Lutheran Church along Powers Run Road.

The annual ecumenical event is meant to bring together local churches and raise awareness of global issues. The service is aimed at all ages.

Founded more than 100 years ago, World Day of Prayer began as a way to observe a common day of prayer among all faiths.

Each year, a different country’s committee prepares the worship service, with this year’s prayer coming from Slovenia.

“There is much to learn from the women who have written the 2019 service whose theme is based on Jesus’ parable of the Great Dinner,” said Barb McQuaid, church member.

“It invites us to widen our circles and expand our communities. This could not be more relevant for all of us in the light of recent tragedies in our local communities.”

The Boyds spent nearly a decade serving as missionaries in Slovenia in the 1990s.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
