All things are yours, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas[c] or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God. 1 Cor. 3:22-23
We are together.
We are together in Christ.
We are together in Christ and Christ is of God.
We have a place at the table, at room in the house, a mention in the will, and a planned future of hope and promise. This stems not from who we are, but from who God is.
God who gives refuge to all, we pray for our brothers and sisters in you, all creation, who are treated as less than equal by lawmakers, officials of the court, and those charged with keeping the peace. We pray for the day when peace will reign and we will come to a deepened and abiding understanding of what it means to be together in and as your family.
