Concerns and Prayers

We are a people who need you in your fullness
— as Creative Father, Redeeming Son, and Sustaining Spirit.
Our lives have complications and pain,
our world has war and despair.
But we were made in your image, and
your Spirit was breathed into us
that we might experience hope in your goodness.

So do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:29-31, NRSV)
