All are welcome in this church, which is free of doctrine and committed to social justice. Racial justice, gun violence prevention and supportive housing are some of our current initiatives.
Prayer—responding to gun violence: Holy One, may we hold in our hearts those who died in the gun violence on Feb. 14. Receive them into your heart and comfort their families and loved ones. Be present and bring healing to those injured physically, mentally and spiritually. Bless them with your presence and help them find hope.
We give you thanks for first responders, for police officers, firefighters and EMTs, and all those whose duties bring them to contact with gun violence. Bless them with your presence and courage.
Forgive us for allowing gun violence to be routine. Give us power to rise above our fear that nothing can be done and grant us the conviction to advocate for change.* Make us instruments of your peace. Amen
*Here is a way you can advocate for change: Join Protect MN at their Day at the Capitol on Feb. 22.
