    Supplication by Brayan Alvarado, General Coordinator of the Ecumenical Christian Council of Guatemala:

    Lord, today as yesterday, the economy and governments betray the people, putting themselves at the service of those who pay, kill, criminalize, and disable those who defend the law and life.

    Prayers for Indonesia:

    O Blessed Creator, You have spread the seas of Indonesia with thousands of islands, each a place of beauty and abundant life.

    Prayers for Hong Kong:  

    Dear Lord, we remember today all those who must flee their homeland because of threats of violence, persecution, and death.

  • Transitions

    By: Debbie Colvin Dec 18, 2019

    Larry and I have been in Peki-Volta Region Ghana, Africa for just a little over 14 months.  It seems like a long time when I think about how things have changed with our immediate family and with our extended family in the US.
