Weekend Update

The weekend is here.

And my, oh my, there is a lot happening in the world.

The Presiding Bishop of the ELCA is Elizabeth Eaton. In light of the recent violence in the Holy Land, she wrote a letter to the Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land. His name is Rev. Dr. Munib A. Younan.

Bishop Eaton has invited all congregations to read this letter aloud during worship on Sunday and set aside intentional time to pray for peace between Israel in Palestine.

Here's a copy of the letter. 

And below are a variety of prayers for peace. Perhaps we can all carve out a few moments of this weekend to sit quietly, pray, and meditate on peace - peace in our own hearts and peace throughout the world.
