Happy Anniversary to The United Church of Canada

Sunday, June 13, 2021

Today we celebrate the 96th Anniversary of the Inauguration of

The United Church of Canada with a special service by our Moderator,

The Right Rev. Dr. Richard Bott.


Come, let us worship the Lord with thanks and praise!


Prayers


Dear God of strength and compassion,

this week we saw devastation in the Muslim community when

four members of a family were struck and killed in London, Ontario

because of their faith.

We deeply grieve this loss, and

we pray for the family members and friends whose lives were touched,

and made better, sweeter, by this family.

Jesus showed us time and time again, through his words and his actions

that the greatest gift we can both give and receive is love;

that we are to love You, O God, and to love our neighbours as ourselves.

You O God, are love.

We offer this family, this community, our neighbours, our love and support

as they bear the anguish of this tragedy.


We commit this prayer to You, in Jesus' name.

Amen.


Blessing


May the Lord bless you and keep you.

May the Lord make his face to shine upon you,

and be gracious to you.

May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,

and give you peace.
