What is it that sets the Christian faith apart from all others? What makes it special? What makes it unique? Once upon a time Jesus invited his followers to demonstrate their devotion to God by putting the person next to them in front of them. He called them to love each other in the exact same way that he loved them. Somehow, the simplicity of this invitation has become diluted and in many cases forgotten and lost. Come join us as we seek to make a compelling case for reviving a faith that is rooted and grounded in love.
O God, who makes all things new,
new stars, new dust, new life; take our hearts,
every hardened edge and measured beat,
and create something new in us this day.
We need your newness, God,
the rough parts of us made smooth; the stagnant, stirred;
the stuck, freed; the unkind, forgiven.
And then, by the power of your Spirit,
Turn us toward Love again we pray. Amen.
