We encourage you to check in with neighbors who might need some extra encouragement right now. We will support each other as we navigate this new reality.
We trust that God brings life out of death and hope out of uncertainty. And we pray this beautiful prayer adapted from the New Zealand Prayer Book:
God of the present moment,
God who in Jesus stills the storm
and soothes the frantic heart;
bring hope and courage to us
as we wait in uncertainty.
Bring hope that you will make us the equal
of whatever lies ahead.
Bring us courage to endure what cannot be avoided,
for your will is health and wholeness;
you are God, and we need you.
