This week at the Faithful Innovation Summit I heard several stories about the creative and innovative work of several congregations and mid councils. One congregation worked on ways they could “re-imagine” God’s call in their community. Another shared the story of organizing the neighborhood to find ways to connect to different groups living in the community.
There are many stories of hope in our congregations and many people who give so much of their time and faith for the mission of God.
Let us pray for those who work together for God’s work.
O God, we pray that your Holy Spirit will guide and direct the paths of our congregations. Open our hearts and minds to the many opportunities to be creative and innovative in our work. May our congregations be your hands and feet in their communities in which they find themselves. May all that we do embody the character of your Son, Jesus Christ, Amen.
