Service of Unity

On Wednesday, Nov. 4, our community gathered on zoom to share a time of reading, reflection, and prayer in the wake of a tense and challenging election season. The service followed a structure borrowed from the Psalms:

Naming God

Naming our Needs

Petitioning God for Help

Expressing our Hope

Our prayer and healing is grounded in first remembering who God is. We can name the pains that we feel and witness, and petition God for hope, because of who God is. And once we have sought God's help we can rest in the hope of God's power and healing.


Our recording missed the first part of this service, but we named God as:

God of Love

Jehovah Jireh, Provider God

Creator God

God who sees and hears

Healing God

Almighty God

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and

God of Hope


We began "naming our needs" by hearing the words of John 13:34-35

"I give you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, so you also must loved each other. This is how everyone will know that you are my disciples, when you love each other."


The service continues below. May it bless you.
