Come as you are. We honor and welcome the diversity you bring.
Lord of Life,
In 2021, may your goodness surround us. As we emerge from the isolation of the pandemic into the joy of community, as we say goodbye to one pastor and welcome another, may your goodness be our bridge. As we encounter poverty, hunger, and injustice, may your goodness empower us to action. May your goodness be our refuge and our strength in every change and challenge. May your goodness sustain us through the despair of Good Friday and fill us with joy in the celebration of Easter Sunday. In all times and all places, may we declare God is good.
