ANNOUNCEMENTS: August 5–14


OPENING PRAYER
O God, our Maker,
you created us in your image
and formed us in infinite variety.
You value every creature, each person.
Startle us with renewed awareness of human diversity.
Challenge us to receive your gift with humility and grace.

O Christ of Redemption,
you teach us to love one another,
and we receive this as a problem in our education.
Forgive our ignorance and move us to changes
that can come only through wholesale reform.
Rather than neutralize our fear with vigils,
bring us to committed action that reveals our complicity
and dismantles systemic racial injustice.

O Spirit of Holiness,
you pour upon us the fire of your mercy
and form us into community.
Let us be a movement for equality
and send us beyond our safety nets
of conversation and conventionality.
Lift us above our narrow understandings.
Help us embrace new ways of being.
Show us the pathway of reconciliation
and reveal anew your vision of a kin-dom of peace. Amen.

THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
