This Sunday we are celebrating Peace Sunday outside in our Peace Garden.  It promises to be poignant and powerful service!

We believe in the possibilities of peace!
Save us, O God, from the toxic belief that might is right—that power lies in coercion and the force of arms.
Remind us of the great strength that rises in human connection, human community, human rights, and the common good.
Show us ways to live in solidarity with all of our neighbors.
And ways to source our openness, empathy, and compassion from the power of your fierce and abiding love.
For your love is the root of peace.

And this peace holds the greatest power.
