New Era
submitted by Mennonite Women USA

God of Love,

You are with us in every transition and change.

As we enter into this new era with excitement
and even some anxiety,
we recall your deep compassion, presence,
and abounding love.

We thank you for the gifts, talents and skills with which you have blessed us.
for the experiences that have brought us to this moment.
 for the work of others that gives breadth and depth to our own work.

Be with us as we move forward, rejoicing with you and supporting one another.

We ask this in your Holy Name.  Amen.
