Thought for the Week
The symphony needs each note
The book needs each word
The house needs each brick
The ocean needs each drop of water
The harvest needs each grain of wheat
The whole of humanity needs you
as and where you are
You are unique
No one can take your place.
Sharing in Prayer
God of all the earth, we offer you our lives in all the uniqueness. Whether we feel special or insignificant, happy or sad, loved or unloved, we lay the moments of our days before you. May we find in you the discovery of our true selves, and may we learn to see ourselves as you see us - precious and dearly loved. Help us to value others, and to show them thorough our actions that they too are loved for who they are. Forgive us when we are not true to ourselves, and when we require others to deny their true nature. Help us instead to be conduits of grace to a world that too easily denies the significance of some and overplays the significance of others. Amen.
