Mid-week Message

Greetings,


Building on the lessons we learned about the importance of living with righteousness and justice in the book of Amos, I offer you this prayer by John Van de Laar (https://sacredise.com/what-god-requires/):


It is not laboured rituals or burdens of religious practice that you require of us, O God,

proving our devotion through the exhaustion of our souls,

or the callouses on our knees;


No, what you require, what you have asked of us is just this:

always to act with justice,

always to love mercy,

and always to walk humbly with you.


What you require is not heavy,

but it does ask of us our lives,

given in thoughts, words and deeds,

of life-bringing fellowship with you,

and with this world that you love so much.

Amen.


Grace and peace,

Rev. Sarina
