Opening Prayer

Spirit of God among us, you have chased us and far too often, we have run from you.  We have resisted the call to be blameless in your sight.  We have rejected your mandate to eradicate racism and sexism.  We have ignored your plea to care for the children and to bless the elderly.  Forgive

 

 

 

us, we pray, and renew in us a clean heart as we continue to speak a new Holy-Spirit-created language of unity and peace.  Amen.
