#BlessedBreak – Living Parables


Matthew 9

35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

God who calls us into story,

We pray, this week, for the representatives gathered as your church in Cincinnati. As we gather for worship and business, remind us that you call us to be living stories, living parables. Equip us, God, to be people who live your peace, embody your justice, and share your mercy.
