Black History Month  Give thanks for the gifts, accomplishments, influence and witness of our African-descent neighbors — we stand together as siblings in Christ and partners in the gospel, doing God’s work in the world together. Pray that God will guide our church as it strives for racial justice, socioeconomic equity, racial reconciliation and an end to racism in our church, society and institutions.

God of healing and hope, give us the courage to stand with our African-descent sisters and brothers as we seek to love as you have loved. Guide us in paths of justice as we seek an end to racism in our country and our church.
