for those weary and hurt…




May we find ways to calm the restless noise that surrounds us. May we support one another as we each open to God’s care as pain is eased and weary spirits are renewed.

And as the sun rises to a new day, may we go out to share God’s strength and hope to those whose deep hurts are stirred  by the angry banter in our airways and our streets.

Evening Prayer…



Renew me this night in the image of your love,
renew me in the likeness of your mercy, O God.
May any refusal to forgive that lingers with me from the day,
any bitterness of soul that hardens my heart,
be softened by your graces of the night.
