A New Year's Prayer for the Church Worker

As the year begins anew: Let us see clearly,  Let us hear unmistakably, Let us not fear of failure, Let us try the new thing, Let us relinquish control, Let us take divine risks, Let us not be complacent,  Let us be innovative, Let us take action, Let us pause and breathe, Let us persist, […]

As the year begins anew:

Let us see clearly, 

Let us hear unmistakably,

Let us not fear of failure,

Let us try the new thing,

Let us relinquish control,

Let us take divine risks,

Let us not be complacent, 

Let us be innovative,

Let us take action,

Let us pause and breathe,

Let us persist,

Let us take time to rest,

Let us speak out,

Let us pursue shalom,

Let us be principled,

Let us be gentle listeners,

Let us faithfully dissent,

Let us extend grace freely,

Let us boldly advocate,

Let us kindly speak,

Let us seek truth,

Let us practice love,

Let us be decisive,

Let us be patient,

Let us be just,

Let us be merciful,

Let us be confident,

Let us be humble,

Let us not be stagnant,

Let us grow and flourish,

Let us move ourselves aside,

And let us make Jesus the center

Amen.
