From Rev Sue Ann Yarbrough
"Ye also, as lively stones, are built up in a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ." Peter 2:5 King James Version
I recently came across a reminder that we are all adventurous spirits. Of course we are, because we are enlivened by the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit knows no fear and no boundaries. I hope this is a constant message of all faith traditions: that we are enlivened by God to be unhindered in our ability to accept love and share that love with all.
Today, I leave you with a prayer from Father Richard Rohr
God, Lord of all creation, please help us to love in our very small way what You love infinitely and everywhere. We thank You that we can offer just this one prayer and that will be more than enough, because in reality everything and everyone is connected, and nothing stands alone. To pray for one part is really to pray for the whole, and so we do. Help us each day to stand for love, for healing, for the good, for the diverse unity of all creation. We pray as Jesus prayed: that all may be one.
We offer our prayer together with all the holy names of God,
Rev. Sue Ann Yarbrough, Associate Pastor
San Lorenzo Community Church, United Church of Christ
