Don’t forget to receive the Peacemaking Offering this Sunday
Merciful God, in your loving presence we confess our sins. God of the universe, we have not always acted in ways that enhance life for our communities, our world, or our environment. We have forgotten to honor the sacredness and grandeur of your creation. Our fears and our selfishness have prevented us from seeing others as your children. Restore us, O God of life. May your Spirit sweep over us as it swept over the waters on that first day of creation, calling forth life from the void. Birth in us a spirit of love, compassion, and courage that your reign might be on earth as it is in heaven. In the name of the One who has declared your reign among us. Amen.
