A Prayer for Recent Violence

In response to violence in our city and around the country in the past week, I wrote this prayer:

O Lord our creator, by your holy prophet you taught your people to seek the welfare of the cities in which they live. In your grace plant peace in our hearts, in our homes, in our neighborhoods and in our nation. Remove from our hearts those impulses of racism and violence and place compassion and God’s love toward our neighbor. We pray specifically for the victims of recent gun violence: Philando Castile, Alton Sterling, the 2- year old Le’Vonte Jones and Officers Brent Thompson, Patrick Zamarripa, Lorne Ahrens, Michael Smith, and Michael Krol. We pray for the repose of their souls and comfort for their families. We ask all these things in the strong name of Jesus who is our peace and our hope. Amen.

Welcome to Our 2016 Summer Interns

This year God has blessed us with one full-time intern and a few part-time interns. The more the merrier! Our summer theme is “The Life of David,” and we will be breaking down strong elements in his life and seeing how we can relate to them. We’ll take the time to understand how “He was a man after God’s own heart,” so we might become the same.

Full-Time Summer Intern: Pete Nelson
