IN WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY
"Gomer"
What do Gomer’s wandering ways and her dysfunctional marriage to the prophet Hosea have to teach us about God’s love?

Please Hold These Joys and Concerns in Your Prayers This Week

For Shelley S.'s family as they returned to their home - that they are able to rest and relax comfortably from their travel

For all the little things we will start to be able to do again due to the vaccine and the scientists who worked on them - eating at restaurants, enjoying movies, going to concerts, spending time with loved ones

For Bob S. celebrating his newfound freedom in enjoying the company of those dear to him

For the hope that our youngest community members will be able to be safe soon - that we continue to be careful around children

For the continued push for peace in Jerusalem

For air conditioner installers - specifically Barbara and David

For the meditation gathering we do together every Sunday before worship - that we celebrate Sarah D.'s calming presence and the effort she puts into helping us ground ourselves

For Jessica S. as she tries to find her wallet

For the Outdoor Church and all of the unhoused population in our communities - that they stay safe with these rising temperatures and continue to receive humane support and resources

For Rev. Wendy and her continued blessings of sobriety and 25 years of theology through her community-centered focus

For the Capones and all those who are running for political positions in office

For God's spark that ignites in us all as we build and rebuild our relationship with Him

For all these prayers and those that go unspoken, we pray in God's name
Amen
