This evening, we gathered for a prayer and action vigil for people in the paths of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. You can download tonight’s liturgy, which includes a gathering prayer and litany by UCC disaster relief worker Karl Jones, here. We also incorporated a new setting of Amazing Grace, called We Who’ve Prayed in Wind and Rain, a compelling insight from Teresa of Avila, and a prayer adapted from Jonah’s cry in the belly of the whale.
We also got a start putting prayers into action. Please consider helping us fill much-needed Clean Up Buckets for the volunteer and professional crews that are will be dispatched to Texas, Florida, and elsewhere. Many of the needed items are available at dollar stores. We’ll be accepting donations for the next month, at least, and will be sending buckets out on a rolling basis. Please join us!
