After "Thoughts and Prayers": Actions for Peace
Friday Evenings in Advent
December 8, 15, and 22
What comes after "thoughts and prayers" are offered?
Join St Andrew's Parish and the Church of the Good Shepherd on Friday nights in Advent for a prayer service that will serve as a springboard into action. As we prepare for Christ's coming, and seek to stem the flow of violence in our world, let us draw near to the God who calls us to this mission. We can answer the call to peacemaking when we have the tools to transform our thoughts and prayers into actions. This unique prayer service combines the contemplative space needed to confront evil with practical steps that we can take to make the world a better place. Letter writing campaigns, voter education, and social media strategies are among the tools we can use individually to collectively build the society we want to live in.
The service will be held at St Andrews Episcopal Church, 283 Bridgeport Ave in Milford in December 8 and 22, and at Church of the Good Shepherd, 680 Racebrook Road, Orange, on December 15. All are welcome to attend this contemplative service and then take action!
