Eighteenth Week of Ordinary Time, Thursday, October 5, 2023
Loving Divine Family,
You have cleared the path before us. As refugees, we entered the land you prepared for us. You displaced those who were in this land so we could enter and find rest. We have not always cared for the land and creation the way you intended. We have not always planted or harvested honourably.
Yahweh, thank you for your love that knows no end. You care for us and creation. We feel loss and grief, but our hope is in you. Thank you for shining your face on us and restoring us.
I seek reconciliation with you and creation today, Loving Creator, and thank you for…
Give us clean hearts and minds. Enlighten us to your truth and loving ways, so we will open our gates to others. Turn our gratefulness to generosity.
With joy we praise you!
Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
