Week of Pentecost, Friday, June 10, 2022
Loving Divine Family,
We gather at your Beautiful Gate from all directions and walks of life. You welcome each of us equally. There is no assigned seating at your table; your courts have enough room for all of us. We are all special guests to you. We are many from throughout the world, but we are one body in you.
Loving Creator, though we are many, we are one. What an amazing gift of community, of oneness with you and each other. Thank you for the wisdom reminding us to be gentle, kind, humble, patient, bearing with one another in love. You know we want to do it our own way, on our own terms. As you love us and bear us in love, we, too, do as you do. Thank you for the Holy Spirit who brings us together with you and each other.
I receive your gracious invitation to your courts today, Loving LORD, and thank you for…
There is no waiting on you, Gracious Creator. You call us to come now, as we are. We come together as your family. Even if we are broken, tired, sick, hungry, hurting, lonely, grieving or doubting, we come to you now. Healed, healthy, rested, restored, joyful or faithful; we come to you now. We have come from all directions and walks of life to gather together in thanksgiving.
With joy we praise you,
Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
