A Statement from Bishop Mariann Regarding Bishop Cook and the Tragedy in Maryland

~  ~  ~
We are considering the most helpful ways to have conversations regarding injustice in this country.  If you would like to be part of those conversations, please contact our church office through this website. 
Gracious God, you created this world and all that is in it for the care and nurture of all whom you have created. Give us the courage to do the hard work that is necessary to live the life you offer to us. Help us to face our anger and fears without the destruction of violence.  Fill us with your wisdom that we may move toward one another in a life of reconciliation through justice and nonsentimental love.
May we see Christ in each person we encounter.  Amen.

Join us as we continue to pray for the people of West Africa and all those who are caring for those infected and affected by the Ebola virus.  Gracious God, giver of life and health, we pray for our sisters and brothers throughout the world who struggle due to every kind of dis-ease, and all of those caregivers who tirelessly give of themselves for the benefit of all.  Be with all those who suffer, especially in West Africa. Help us to be agents of your mercy and hope today.  In the strong name of Jesus we pray.  Amen.

Every Sunday we light a candle for peace ~ you are welcome to join us.
Holy and Gracious God, source of our deepest peace and hope, we pray for your blessing upon all those involved in violence today. Send your Spirit upon those who are injured in body, mind and spirit, hold the survivors of those who have died close to your healing heart. Receive those who have died into the arms of your mercy and love. Give grace to the first responders who daily sacrifice so much for so many. And finally, Holy One, give us, your sometimes fragile creation the will and means to achieve peace in our day.   In the strong name of the non-violent Jesus we pray. Amen.
