Prayer for Community in a Time of Pandemic

From Corrymeela Community, Ireland

God of the good news that spreads faster than fear,
God of the courage that comes from the heart:
Be with us as anxieties rise and with us as uncertainty grows.
Be with us when children ask difficult questions,
and with us when parents seem farther away.
Remind us that to be a community does not always mean
to be physically present beside those we know well.
It also can mean being spiritually present
with those who feel very alone;
and that you as our God, the God made flesh, 
are also the God who calls us from the tumult
and tells us to be still
and to know that you are God
with us. 
Amen. (Corrymeela Community, Ireland)

I am pleased to have been offered the opportunity to give back to Penticton United Church by designing and managing our website. I hope everyone who visits finds what they need, and get some enjoyment from it as well.
