A member of our community sent us this prayer that we would like to share with you all.
It is a quote from the book The New Parish, by Paul Sparks, Tim Soerens and Dwight J. Friesen.
Prayer for the new parish
God of time and story,
Give us the courage to listen carefully to our collective narrative
As part of Christ’s body that we might learn from our past
What faithful presence might look like for us in our time. Help us to
Listen to those who have come before us with the grace and love that
God offers to us. By your spirit may the next chapter in the story
Reflect a hopeful new day.
