Dear Friend,

 
READINGS 

Peter explains to the believers in Jerusalem how the Holy Spirit was received by Gentiles in Caesaria.
John sees a vision of the New Jerusalem descending from heaven, and a voice that proclaims that God’s dwelling place is now among people on earth.

Jesus’ new commandment – to love one another.
Prayer
God of Restoration, tear down the walls we have built up. Level the rough places. Raise up the chasms that we have dug. Repair the bridges we have torn down. Call us into the work of restoring the earth that we have decimated.
Call us into the work of healing, between one another, with the earth, and with You. God of Restoration, give us the tools we need. Guide us in how we use our gifts for the work of reconciliation.
In the name of Christ, who is the bridge, the way to eternal life through love, we pray. Amen.
