Christ our risen Lord, whose fullness we all have received, You call us to abide in You as You abide in the Father.
Strengthen us then, who seek the truth and beauty of Your gospel. For those in our church and community who are dispirited or downcast, may we become a visible demonstration of Your encouragement and compassion. Let us build our dreams, our lives, and our community with courage that is based upon our resurrection hope and the indwelling presence of Your Holy Spirit. Amen.
Soli Deo Gloria,
Reverend Dr. Conrad C. Sharps
