Noonday Prayers for Justice, Mercy, and Love
As we Christians recognize Pentecost, our nation grieves the death of George Floyd and the continuing horrors people of color are suffering under our American flag.
During this service, we will continue praying peace for the dead and comfort for the grieving. We will make room for grief and for anger. And, together, we will seek hope and peace.
As a symbol of the Holy Spirit and as a sign of God’s light in the darkness of these days, we invite you to bring a candle to the Noonday service and to add your prayer to our litany, sharing in the Facebook comment thread a photograph of your lit candle and your written petition. As the week wears on, we invite you to add your prayers as you feel called. For those who will not participate via Facebook, you are welcome to reply to this message with your image, and we will post those photographs as we can through the week.
