March Prayer Letter

by Deaconess Diane Kaufmann (LDA)
The Deaconess Community is a member of the DIAKONIA World Federation. Each month the DWF publishes a prayer letter. Below is the March 2019 prayer written Deaconess Diane Kaufmann. 
As the world’s nations continue to struggle with differing ideas and politics regarding global warming and climatechange, all the while dealing with its results and dire predictions of the future, we acknowledge the source of our hope as God’s people.
Creator, the strength of the people, we honor you.
We come before you as people drawn from every tribe, nation, language;
some indigenous peoples of this land, some refugees, some immigrants,
some pilgrims, all of us as one Body together.
We respect the truth of your spirit world and care for your
creations to the east, to the south, to the west, and to the north.
We honor you by deeds and not words.
We live by the ways you have entrusted to us within the circle of life.
Come Great Spirit as we gather in your name.
– Pastor Joann Conroy, Oglala Sioux
