Thought for the week:
"When we choose thankful prayer over wallowing in anxiety and worry, we are demonstrating an unwavering trust in God."

- Priscilla Shirer
In light of recent events, SPC invites all to pray for unity in our community:

O God, you created all people in your image. We thank you for the astonishing variety of races and cultures in the world. Enrich our lives by ever-widening circles of friendship, and show us your presence in those who differ from us, until our knowledge of your love is made perfect in our love for all your children. Grant, oh God, that your holy and life-giving Spirit may so move every human heart, that the barriers which divide us may crumble, suspicions disappear, and hatred cease, and that with our divisions healed, we might live in justice and peace; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen. (from the Book of Common Worship)
