Order of Worship | August 1 | Cultivating Beloved Community
We acknowledge we are gathering on land where Miami, Osage, Shawnee, and other Indigenous peoples have lived and labored, fought, and loved. We continue to work and pray for justice and conciliation.
Call to Worship
We join today with those worshiping all over the world, especially those in Thailand, Sudan and Colombia.
Some gather outdoors, some in churches, some at home.
We gather because here we find the one who gives us hope.
Hope for healing, hope for unity.
We gather under the banner of Beloved Community
Because all are children of the one who loves us.
We gather protected by vaccines, masks and distance.
We gather so that we can feel close to each other.
We are here because we have struggled with our own endurance.
In the end, we have been blessed with strength and hope.
