Pentecost 3a, 2020

Our unity with Christ means we share an identity and mission not always welcomed by this world.  Sometimes, it may even bring us into conflict with those in our homes.  Faith may require courage if fear is not to overwhelm.  But faith also may depend of God’s presence.  How has your courageous hope and trust in God helped you to deal with a fear in your life?

Grant me, O God, courage for the way and trust in your presence.  When fear come, do not let me deny either you or the fear.  Strengthen me in the example of Jesus’ life.  Raise me by the hope of your coming reign.  Live in me through your Spirit.  In Jesus Christ.  Amen.  Pentecost 3a 20
