Monday, July 20 2020

In our Solace Zoom meeting we looked at this picture and described how it fit our lives in this Covid 19 disrupted life. We then read this beautiful prayer.

 

We pray to God who some call Mystery, beyond all definition, that

When in the midst of uncertainty - may we know faith.

When in the midst of anxiety - may we know serenity...

 

We continue our weekly series of intercessions for our one human family at this time of crisis adopting the words of sisters and brothers from different parts of the world. Today we invite you to pray with Rev. John Wesley Oldham from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

 

Look at the picture again. Rebecca Eldridge shared the lyrics to Martina McBride's song Anyway with our group. Read these lyrics as you swing out over the abyss.

 

You can spend your whole life building, 

Something from nothin' 

One storm can come and blow it all away; 

Build it anyway

You can chase a dream, 

That seems so out of reach 

And you know it might not never come your way, Dream it anyway 

God is great 

But sometimes life ain't good 

And when I pray
It doesn't always turn out like I think it should 

But I do it anyway I do it anyway

This world's gone crazy 

It's hard to believe 

That tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway

You can love someone with all your heart 

For all the right reasons 

In a moment they can choose to walk away 

Love 'em anyway

God is great 

But sometimes life ain't good 

And when I pray 

It doesn't always turn out like I think it should 

But I do it anyway 

I do it anyway

You can pour your soul out singing 

A song you believe in 

That tomorrow they'll forget you ever sang 

Sing it anyway 

Yeah, sing it anyway 

I sing I dream I love Anyway

 

In these crazy days of Covid 19 summer, live the life of faith;

Anyway!

 

Prayer for Today

Gracious God, free us from the grip of anxiety and open our minds to the hope you provide through the teachings of Christ and the presence of your Holy Spirit. Amen.
