A Community Prayer

For the communities that welcomed us at our birth, showing us love and nourishment in the early years

We give you thanks, O Lord of history

For the communities that will welcome us in our futures, the communities in which we will serve and be served, love and be loved

We give you thanks, O Lord of possibilities, of hope that does not fail

For this community, for its deep nourishment to our spirits, its essential questions to our hearts, and its care of our souls, welcoming us now while calling us forward to follow Christ,

We give you thanks, O Lord of this time and place, You are our peace and our provocation

For the mystery of life that you, God of love, give in community

We give you thanks, for all this and more,
Amen.
