Monday, October 9, 2023: To journey with one another is our challenge and our calling

Monday, October 9, 2023: To journey with one another is our challenge and our calling

This is a prayer request from Melva for friends now in Israel/Palestine:

Good evening.............I have a special prayer request....

One of my former neighbors from Poway, CA...near San on a dream vacation with her two sons and daughter-in-law.....they are in the holy lands of Jerusalem with a guide, as they did not want to travel in a large group which would make it real personal.... they have been planning for years.... and the plans were to be baptized in the Jordan River before going a family....

I got an e-mail.... she said to "please pray for our family....we came to visit and learn and not realizing we would be in a middle of a war.... they are in a hotel...but can not leave the when it is about dark they leave to try and find a store or restaurant for some food.... there is no airport open or trains or other travel means.... it is really bad...." Thank-you.... Remember that He cares.... Odessa


Source, Sojourner, and Spirit, to journey with You is to walk with our gazes fixed upon a horizon of hope.

To journey with one another is our challenge and our calling.

You call us to move with missionary urgency to become a more vibrantly living sign of Your love in the world.

Break us out of worn paths, free us from the thickets of ce've alaays done it this æay, and for those who may be frightened by the new vista revealed, grant boldness of heart.

May we become a church where all vocations are welcomed, celebrated, and nurtured, where Your priests reflect the diversity of Your people, and where our structures are at the service of Your kin-dom of radically loving inclusion.

Cultivate in us a holy, healthy restlessness on this synodal path. Make us unafraid of prophetic decisions that take us along uncharted territory.

Give us the radical unity that is Your gift and promise.

Grant us generosity of trust and expansiveness of hope as we say,

Amen. May it be so.
