Thanks be to God who provides a beautiful day to rest. We celebrate this day down in our souls,
we celebrate having Christian goals!
Remembering today is a day that God has created.
We all have choices to make.
Do we protect our streams and lakes?
Do we care for the homeless, offering them rest
or do we treat them as less?
Do we love as Christ wants us to love?
Or do we only put on our Christianity
with our Sunday glove?
Do we serve each other?
Do we help our sibling?
Or do we walk on by,
thinking their sign is a lie?
Do we make assumptions or make judgments?
You, Holy One, celebrate all lives!
You, God who knows our heart even when we don’t.
You, God who hears our cry
when we mourn those who die.
God, we ask for forgiveness
and even in our nakedness,
God you forgive.
With you on our side,
we fight for injustices and racism to fall away.
We work to overcome,
so that equality will reign one day.
God help us to be kind.
Remind us we can’t help others, if we remain blind. Lastly, help us pray for all! Amen
