Make us a channel of your peace...
Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring your love.
Where there is injury, your pardon, God,
And where there is doubt, true faith in You.
On August 26 we hosted a vigil in the afternoon for our local neighbors. It was a time of shared silence and prayer as we reflected together on the many critical issues of our time.
We thought of others in the Bay Area standing for love and inclusiveness as a response to the events in Charlottesville.
We prayed for peace among nations, races, religions, and cultures.
We prayed for all those in the path of Hurricane Harvey.
We sang the hymn “Love is Flowing Like a River,” to affirm our faith and hope.
We tolled the bell that has been on our site since 1889, calling all within earshot to pause and to pray.
