Moderator Mardi’s Blog: We Have Faith; Let us Pray

As you plan to worship and pray tomorrow, Sunday, December 4th, please consider joining your prayers with ours as faith leaders at the COP17 climate change conference in Durban, South Africa.

We will begin praying in a large interfaith service at 3:00pm. Morning prayers offered in North America – for the healing and mending of God’s world – will be joined with ours. Here is a two minute video prayer for easy use in congregational worship:

Today I marched with what I’m told were 15,000 to 20,000 others. The crowd of us representing people of faith chanted ‘We have faith’ and ‘Climate Justice now’ interspersed with harmonic African singing and all of us joining in choruses of ‘Amen’.

We are people of hope. We are one people of one Spirit. Let us join our hearts and minds in prayer for all of God’s people, for all of God’s world.
