As the seasons change we continue to wait, to hope, to imagine, to trust and to believe in you, Oh God

We believe that there is a time for every season and we’re getting ready and we’re doing the work and we’re building the relationships and we’re refusing to move in a spirit of “business as usual” and we no longer long for “back to normal”

A change is coming

A change must come

We are the change agents for this time

As the days get shorter and some parts of the world get colder we pray for the fiery presence of your Holy Spirit to warm our hearts and inspire our will

We pray that the coldness and ugliness of racism, police violence, xenophobia, transphobia, anti-Blackness and misogyny all around us, within us, dries up and like brittle chaff blows away into nothingness

A change is coming

A change must come

We are the change agents for this time

Help us to move with power and grace, clarity and determination, joy and brilliance, promise and purpose.

A change is coming

A change must come

We are the change agents for this time

May it be so.

Amen.
