“Be compassionate just as your Father is compassionate.” Luke 6:36(CEB)
O God, you spoke your word and revealed your good news in Jesus, the Christ. Fill all creation with that word again, so that by proclaiming your joyful promises to all nations and singing of your glorious hope to all peoples, we may become one living body, your incarnate presence on the earth. Amen
Go to love one another, for you are beloved. Go to honor one another, for you are honored. Go to share life with one another, for you have been given life. Go with the power of God, whose Spirit is always with us and always guiding us.
