A Prayer for Peace (attributed to Francis of Assisi)

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

We give Thanks!

On this Thanksgiving Weekend, we give thanks for our Triune God -- Father, Son and Spirit -- who created us, saved us, and sustain us day by day.

We give thanks for the gift of life, for the gift of health, for the gift of daily bread, and we pray for all those who are facing death, all those suffering from ill health, all those who lack the basic necessities of life. Help us to help them and care for them, O Lord.

We give thanks for your creation, for the beautiful colours of fall and the blessings of the harvest. Help us to be good stewards of this world, O God, and to live simply.

We give thanks for love, friendship, and family, O Lord, and we pray that you might open our eyes to see those who are lonely and extend our tables to welcome in the stranger and the one on the margins.

We give thanks!

The Kingdom of God is...

What is the Kingdom of God?
Who rules it?
How do you get in?
What is life in the Kingdom like?

This fall, Lydia will be taking on all these questions and more as we spend time learning about Jesus' main teaching topic -- the Kingdom of God (or 'The Kingdom of Heaven', as Matthew called it -- Matthew's audience was primarily Jewish, and Jewish people at the time often substituted the word 'heaven' for 'God').

Come on out on Sundays at 10am and hear more about this wonderful Kingdom!
