The real deal

2015 COVER

Isaiah 43:8-13

What comfort does God offer to people? How is this comfort good news to us, to our neighbors, and the world?


O God, you reign over all creation with steadfast love and faithfulness. Comfort those who mourn and peace to all facing turmoil. Word of God, live within us and enlighten the world through the witness you empower us to make in Christ’s name. Amen.

~ Stan Dueck, Director, Transforming Practices
