Wide Open to the World

A Community of Love   Mark 11: 15-19

Prayer for the Day:
Loving God we enter your temple because it is your place. We confess that sometimes we act as if your house is our place. At times our actions deny your love and deform the transforming activity of Spirit. We truly seek forgiveness. O reconciling Christ, may it be our passion to provide sacred space and extend love to all people of the world! Amen.

Question for reflection:
In what ways is my congregation good news to the whole community or a chaplaincy ministry to its members? What are the implications for me?
