Emily Dickinson

Gracious God, we thank you for the
kindness of strangers, for the people
who live out the compassion and love
embodied in you, Jesus. Anoint with
your spirit of graciousness the people
caring for the dead and dying. Grant
them strength for their work and
knowledge of your constant love. In
your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.

In the face of the sheer magnitude of the pandemic,
how have you tended to your own spirituality?

What tools of nurturing your faith have you depended on and/or adapted (prayer, worship, charity, advocacy, hospitality, stewardship, reading, meditation)?
