“Everlasting God, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. Since the creation of the world, you have nurtured us with your love. And yet we shamefully acknowledge that we do not always share your love with others. We are selective about who we choose as neighbors…only those who are clean, who look like us, who talk right, who seem safe. Loving God, teach us to love you more fully. For in loving you, our lives will show love to all others, even as your love encompasses all your creation. in all generations. We pray in the name of your greatest gift of love, Jesus Christ. Amen”
Response to the written Word from Matthew 22:34-46, and the spoken word from Barbara Shudak C.L.S.
