A Word from Teresa – 12/7/18

We continue to follow the tragic news along our own Texas border. Our hearts break and our prayers continue.

The conference website continues to communication information on The United Methodist Response

As well, stories by Bishop Schnase and other conference leaders have been appearing in Ministry Matters. https://www.ministrymatters.com/all/topic/Border+crossing

 

The following prayer was shared at the November 29 District Professionals meeting:

 

God of Exile,

You were carried into Egypt

By people fleeing danger.

We pray for all in exile

That they, like you, can find home

And shelter and safety.

Because you were exiled

And you remain with the exiled.

Amen.

From Daily Prayer with the Corrymeela Community by Padraig O Tuama
