Prayer from Erin Mawhinney, Trinity College Queensland student.

Holy and loving God, you created each of us in your image.

You created us to have life in abundance, to be in joyful and loving relationship with you and with each other.

We have come into the Uniting Church from many different places and backgrounds, with different ideas, and different experiences. Help us to recognise this diversity as a gift.

Help us to listen, to seek understanding, not barriers.

Help us to see Christ in the other and help us to remember that we are all loved by you.

Help us to work together as the body of Christ, following where you lead, bringing your life and flourishing to the world.

In the name of Christ, we pray. Amen.

Photos from Uniting Church Queensland's post 26/08/2021

We wanted to share a collection of photos from the Blue Care Sunday service at West End Uniting Church.

These images capture Craig Wildermuth delivering a short speech about Blue Care and acknowledging its rich history which started right there; Rev Andrew Gunton, Moderator, delivering the bible reading; and Rev Dr Adam McIntosh, Associate Director of Mission Pastoral Care at Blue Care, delivering the sermon for the service.

Rev Dr Adam McIntosh’s sermon included a 'day in the life' story from an original Blue Nurse, and emphasised how Blue Care is a people of love and compassion, helping others to live life to the fullest. One key takeaway, as described by Craig Wildermuth, was to 'keep it simple' after a story Adam shared of a mother and son. The son was at end of life, and in a rare lucid moment, opened his eyes and said to his mother, "it's simple Mum" and closed his eyes again.

Prayer for Afghanistan

Loving God, you call us to live together in peace, reaching out to each other in your love.

We look on with despair as we see parts of our community, parts of our world torn apart by injustice.

Help us to reach out with compassion to those who find themselves without hope.

May we who have much to give offer what we have to those who have lost everything.

Help us to see those who are desperate to live their lives in safety and security as our neighbours, the people we are called to love and care for.

May we be the voice to those whose voice has been lost in the noise of political rhetoric.

Continue Merciful God to place within us a spirit of peace and reconciliation and enable us by your spirit to act justly, love mercy and continue our walk with you.

In Christ we pray.
Amen.

Uniting and Diversity reflection—Living into the diversity of Christ’s body 24/08/2021

Uniting and Diversity reflection—Living into the diversity of Christ’s body

“Welcome. Gentleness. Presence. Attentiveness. Commitment. This is all Christians need to know about disability. Simple words that sometimes ask more of us than we want to give.” As I read these words it struck me that these spiritual practices can also help us live in the diversity of Christ’s body that being a multicultural church promises us—if only we are willing to give ourselves to the journey.

God of mercy and compassion,
We pray for the world as across the globe we face the challenges of COVID-19 .
We give you thanks for those who care for the sick,
for those who work on limiting the spread of the disease,
and those who develop and administer vaccines.
We remember before you all those affected by COVID-19,
Comfort those who mourn the death of a loved one,
Heal those who have COVID-19 or suffer the long-term effects of having had COVID-19.
Sustain those who work in health care, testing and vaccination.
Encourage those who are supporting education remotely,
Console those who must stay at home,
And bless and protect those whose work is essential for our well-being.
We long for a world where access to health care and vaccines are shared equitably.
Strengthen the efforts of those who work to end COVID-19 for all.
And fill us with a desire to work for justice and care for all.
Amen

Prayer from Rev Melanie Wheeley, Congregational Minister, Albert Street Uniting Church.

God of peace,
You call us to be one people with many voices and diverse gifts.
We thank you for that diversity.
Teach us how to live with the tension diversity creates.
To listen wholeheartedly,
To speak slowly and thoughtfully,
To act in ways that bring about freedom for those whose rights and voices are being silenced.
As we do this may we find ourselves one with you and one with each other.
In Christ’s name we pray,
Amen.
