At the end of a day of travel, so much to pray over today:
– Rejoicing in Christian love with Disciples couples and families whose lives are more secure today after the Supreme Court decision on marriage equality under the law – And praying over the deep distress of Disciples who disagree.
– Praying for pastors seeking to maintain a community of care among parishioners of different points of view.
– Praying with the Mother Emanuel Church family and for the families of the nine and for a larger society struggling to learn the gifts and grace of diversity;
Through it all, prayers of gratitude to a God of love who calls us to love each other and for a church community seeking to welcome all to the table to know God’s embrace.
