Reflection of the week
Posted in Faith
Each of us is on a journey of reconciliation – with God and each other. Restoring human relationships is part of God's reconciling mission in our world. Through forgiveness, God's grace works to provide all with hope and a new way of living.
And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. – Micah 6:8
Thank you loving God for all the people in that live in our country for all the races and cultures and the richness of our differences.
As we stand together with the Indigenous peoples of this land on National Sorry Day (26 May) and celebrate Reconciliation Sunday (27 May) on our journey of reconciliation, forgive us for our selfishness, our lack of sharing, caring and understanding.
We pray for covenantal relationships, founded on truth. We pray for more just, inclusive and equal relationships in our nation and in the church.
Lord God, I want my heart to break from what breaks your heart, to be truly compassionate, to be sincerely passionate about reconciliation and justice.
Today I choose to build community, to break down barriers and to reconcile with others at every opportunity in my everyday life.
Thank you, Creator God, for the relationship each of us can have in you. Amen.
