God Sends the Rain to Everyone
Matthew 5:43-48 NRSV
But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you… For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? (Matthew 5:44, 46)
Love others despite your opinion of who they are. Does someone come to mind right now?
In keeping with our Connectional Theme of Environmental Justice in 2018, in the months of September – November our prayer focus will be on “Hazardous Waste”.
During the month of September take time to gather information on the effects of hazardous waste on humans and the environment. Commit to sharing information and resources with others in your congregation. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide your prayers.
