You have made known to me the paths of life; you will make me full of gladness with your presence. - Acts 2:18

Justice Prayers - March 31st 2021

This Holy Week, it is good to remember that before Jesus was betrayed and crucified, he prayed to his Father, “ I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”  (John 17:26)   We cling hard to this promise of Christ continuing to make known God and God’s love today as we hold up the world’s hurt and injustice that at times seems so strong.  And yet we know we are resurrection people.
