Evening Prayer – 17 June 2018

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

A good day of worship and fellowship

Time spent in conversation, laughter, and prayer

Time spent connecting with friends and co-workers

Time also spent in meetings and deliberations

Time being your Church at #GA223 of the Presbyterian Church (USA)

As we wind down and prepare for sleep

Lord, give us a restful night

Prepare our hearts and spirits for the work tomorrow

May your church in this place listen

May we hear your Spirit’s call

As we march for Justice

As we speak against Hatred

May we live and show your Love

May we show the world your way of Peace

In your mercy, hear this prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem et in Terra

Grant Us Peace on Earth

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…

Canticle of the Turning – Rory Cooney

A song from this afternoon’s Plenary (complete Assembly) session of the 223rd General Assembly…

This particular verse hit me…

From the halls of power to the fortress tower,

not a stone will be left on stone.

Let the king beware for your justice tears

every tyrant from his throne.

The hungry poor shall weep no more,

for the food they can never earn;

These are tables spread, ev’ry mouth be fed,

for the world is about to turn.

Refrain

My heart shall sing of the day you bring.

Let the fires of your justice burn.

Wipe away all tears,

For the dawn draws near,

And the world is about to turn.

Joy – Christine Valters Paintner

“Joy is not the same thing as happiness, but tapping into a deep well of love. Joy is a deep and abiding presence, whereas happiness is a fleeting quality.”

Amen, Kat, Amen

like mercury colliding...

we have lost our souls
when children
are collateral
