Prayerfully prepare for this spiritual practice by watching the video above, featuring Community of Christ musicians from all over the world!

Two weekends ago, Community of Christ in the USA, made big decisions that impact our community. We continue to prayerfully uphold one another as we continue to seek unity.

“15Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 16Live in harmony with one another…” Romans 12:15, NRSV

As community, we honor ALL realities and and responses in this moment- pain, discomfort, celebration, relief, anticipation, fear. Our welfare is bound in the welfare of one another. How can we honor ALL in this space right now? Practicing UNITY in diversity means that sometimes the very thing that makes one rejoice makes another weep. As one body, we feel all of it. In Christ’s beloved community, there must be space for all the realities of our lives. Our unity, even in our differences in this moment, is imperative to the building of the kingdom. What does it mean for you that we need each one to experience the Zion of our dreams?

We weep with those who weep- TIME OF PRAYER

We rejoice with those who rejoice- TIME OF PRAYER

We live in harmony with one another- TIME OF PRAYER
