Pentecost 2020

Come Holy Ghost, Creator blest, and in our heart take up thy rest. Come with your grace and heavenly aid, And fill the hearts which you have made.

Come Holy Ghost, Pentecost Hymn, Rabanus Maurus, 776-856.

On this Pentecost Sunday, Lord, people are dying, cities are burning, and our future is uncertain.

For generations you have put before us both a path to peace and prosperity, and one that leads to destruction and death. (Deuteronomy 30:15, Acts 2: 28).

Too often Lord we choose the wrong way, and then having lost our way, we cry out in despair. (Judges 2-10).

Yet you are ever with us and hear our cry. Your love and forgiveness are everlasting. Let them guide us forward, loosening the grip of hate and fear, inequity and greed, to a better way.

Spirit of Truth, you live in us (John 14:17), guide us to your peace.

Amen
