Wild and Unruly One, so much around us is in flux. The world is changing and our lives are upended. Though we crave stability and security, give us the courage and patience to wait for your guidance. Sustain us through our discomfort and reveal the pathways to changes that last. Amen.
Don't forget to join us virtually on Sunday via Zoom for a very important Congregational Meeting this Sunday! ❤
Creator God, we know that we are not meant to be alone, and yet in these days of social distancing, we are forced to separate ourselves. We wave at neighbors across the yard and video chat with friends, but it is not the same as sharing a cup of coffee. We miss handshakes and hugs. We pray especially for those who live by themselves, who already feel alone. Help us to reach out to one another. Remind us that we are all connected by your love. 💜 Amen.
- Rev. Lee Hull Moses, Chief of Staff, Office of the General Minister and President, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
The prayer shared in the sermon today was written by Rev. Donna Vuilleumier, Pastor at Smith Memorial Church, UCC in Hillsboro, NH.
She writes, “We have some women in the community who have been making face masks and ear savers and sending them around the country, as well across the front steps of our church for people to help themselves. This is not a unique situation as this mask-making ministry is everywhere.”
A Blessing for Face Masks
Blessed are those who give the gift of their time and their talent to create face masks for others for their community, for strangers, for they shall help to save the lives of many people.
Blessed are those who make masks for others to wear so that together we may protect others, especially the most vulnerable who at another time had protected us when they worked as first responders, served in the military, or taught us the school lessons of our childhood, for they shall truly know the value of each human life.
Blessed are those who work tirelessly to fill bins in the market or the clothesline across the front door of the church with masks of all sizes and types, for they shall know that this is grace, compassion, and love of neighbor.
Blessed are the mask makers who send face masks to those who may be forgotten to the agencies that support the homeless, nursing home staff and residents, the mentally ill, the prisoner, the tenderest among us, for they shall have respected and remembered the least of these.
Blessed are those who crochet ear savers and hunt down the buttons that hook on to the face masks for comfort for those who wear them for endless hours, for they shall see the face of God in each caregiver who wears one.
Blessed are those who give out of their own money for supplies and postage for face masks and ear savers
because others’ lives and comfort are more important than their personal checking account, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who wear face masks to show their care for others, who know that they can be passing on the virus that moves as a stealth, infecting others days before their own symptoms emerge for they shall be for they shall be called children of God.
O Holy One. Bless the mask makers, those who create – from cloth, flannel, elastic, wire, yarn and buttons – the barriers that allow us to be out among others yet keep them safe from what we might be silently harboring.
Bless the mask wearers that we may see them as a sign of care and concern for others; that we may see your face beneath each mask.
Bless us all that we may see that by covering our noses and mouthswe have opened our eyes and our hearts to one another. Amen.
Sometimes we depend on the strength of our neighbors and sometimes our neighbors depend on ours. We take turns shouldering together the shared burdens of life. Through one another, God upholds us. In gratitude for this and all the gifts of community let us continue to love our neighbor.
A prayer for the healers among us: Gracious and merciful God, we lift our prayers today for the healers among us. We pray for hospital staff, nurses, doctors, and chaplains. We pray for first responders. We pray for janitorial staff who keep our healing places clean. We pray for scientists who are working on a cure and a vaccine. We pray for caregivers who bring meals and medicine. We are grateful for them, O God. Give them strength to do the work they are called to do. Amen.

Mothers Day did not originate with carnations and highlighting women who birth and nurture children. The over-focus on these aspects has led to pain on the part of women, and children, who for a variety of reasons get left out or feel lacking as a result.
Mothers Day originated recognizing the work for world peace and community building that women, with children and without, have long been about.
Let’s celebrate, like those first Mothers Days, the fierce contributions of women to the betterment of this world!

It’s Springtime! Gorgeous flowers are in bloom, birds are singing, and everything is turning green! And people are being drawn outside to the wonder of it all.
All that life emerging often serves to encourage us – especially since we’ve been under COVID-19 restrictions. Not even a beautiful spring, however, can compare to the gift we’ve been given in Jesus, raised up from death into new life.
Our full life comes as we believe! And part of that full life is our own over-flowing spirit of gratitude, which leads us to respond with signs of life.

Holy One, as our spirits huddle together with grief and fear entangled, let your peace be upon us. Keep us from closing off our hearts to the world in pain. Wherever we encounter wounds, still tender from trauma or despair, may we be a healing presence, a community of compassion and solidarity. Amen.
