On Sunday morning, as we worshiped together, celebrated our choirs, and enjoyed a lively parish picnic, dark news was coming out of Florida. When the festivities were over, we learned the the deadliest mass shooting in American history had taken place at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. Grace Church joins with people of faith all over the world in condemning this act of violence. Following the crucified and Risen Christ, we proclaim God’s love for all people. In the face of hate and death, may we be filled with love and life.
Together, we pray for the Human Family:
O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
JULY 16 – “THE HOUSE THAT GRACE BUILT” will officially kick-off on Saturday, July 16 in Queens! Come and join us as we partner with Habitat for Humanity to rehabilitate a condemned house for a family in need. For details, and to get involved, visit our Outreach page.
