Holy Ground & Fertile Soil
We praise you, God, for the gift of our community
Gathered in love week after week.
For our community gathered in faith—
faith in you,
faith in each other,
faith that even in our times of faithlessness
we will find your Spirit in our midst,
we will find strength in one another and be replenished.
We praise you for our community gathered in hope—
we gather because there is hope for each of us;
we gather to renew our hope
for our communities, for our world.
May our sense of our own calling burn within us.
May we be emboldened for your sake.
