Jesus took the ordinary and made it extraordinary, just as he does in Holy Communion.
Lord, we are not worthy to receive you, but only say the word, and we shall be healed.
The Word is Emmanuel, God with us.
Let us keep up the good work of being open to welcoming all that children are and bring to us.
We can join Christ in building the Kingdom of God by serving the homeless, trafficked, poor and refugee.
Give thanks for what God has done, knowing what he can and will do.
We have a God who knows our every second of trauma and grief.
