Moment for Reflection – William Sloane Coffin

Nothing separates us more from God and our fellow human beings than our grievances. If you want to avoid God, concentrate on money, status, health, but most of all on your grievances.

Call to Worship
Psalm 1:1-3
L: Happy are those who do not ridicule and scoff but who delight in God’s teachings
A: and meditate on them day and night.
L: They are like trees planted by streams of water.
A: They yield fruit in due season, and their leaves do not wither.
L: Praise the Lord!
A: The Lord’s name be praised!

Prayer of the Day: God of life, your Son, Jesus, prayed for his disciples, and sent them into the world to proclaim the coming of your realm of peace. By your Holy Spirit, hold the church in unity, and keep it faithful to your Word, so that, in breaking bread together, we may be one with Christ, in faith and love and service, now and forever. Amen.

Blessings! David
