A number of us are continuing to pray for the United Church and it’s future, especially those preparing for General Council 42 this summer.

I offer this prayer:

Lord, this church is your church.

All of it.

Every building. Every hymn book. Every organ or guitar. Every church, presbytery, conference and office.

From top to bottom it belongs to you.

So we ask you to take it. We ask you to form it and frame it. We ask you to guide it and lead it. We ask you to shape it and rebuild it.

It. Is. Your’s.

We are busy making our plans, so I ask you to take them as well. All those who are preparing reports. All those who are preparing to gather in Cornerbrook, NL. All those who are left wondering and worrying about what will come next. Help us to submit ourselves to your Spirit so we may make faithful decisions, decisions which will glorify your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

May it be so.
