Being Faith Community in Times of Crisis: Pew Theology

Listening the voices of those people who make up our faith community. Take a moment to hear their stories. 

 Poem by participant Carma Coon

My Morning Prayer

Longing for human touch

Seeking connection

Phone calls, zoom, Skype, Facetime

But it’s not enough.

How long, how long, oh Lord

You Lord are here, touch me

I cry for all your people Lord

I cry for myself

We are weary, our bones ache

We pray, oh Lord, for renewed strength

We say we’ll get through this

We say we’re in this together

We need to feel Your love for us

We need to feel it in our bones and in our hearts.

The earth has shifted

Our lives have changed forever

I pray for hope, love, and compassion

I pray for strength, strength

In Your abiding love for us

We are not alone. You are with us always

Always and forever, Praise God
