Theme for the Day: Together…we affirm that God is faithful

Scripture Readings: Lamentations 3:19-26; Psalm 57:7-11; Hebrews 10:19-25; Luke 1:67-75

Reflection:

The eternal unity of Father, Son and Spirit draws us closer into the love of God,

and calls us to participate in God’s work in the world which is love, mercy and

justice. Mercy and justice are not divided in God, but rather are joined together in

the steadfast love manifested in God’s covenant with us and with all of creation.

The new father Zechariah testifies to God’s manifestation of mercy in keeping his

promises to Abraham and his descendents. God is faithful to his holy covenant.

As we continue to pray for the unity of the church, we must not neglect to meet

together and encourage one another, spurring each other on towards love and good

deeds, saying: “God is faithful.”

Questions:

In what ways have you discerned God’s faithfulness in your life and the life of

your community in the past year?

 In what ways does God’s faithfulness inspire us to pursue the goal of Christian

unity?

Prayer:

Faithful God, we give thanks for your steadfast love and your devotedness that

extends to the clouds. As we wait in joyful hope, working and praying together for

the full visible unity of your church, fill us with confidence in your promises . We

make this prayer through Jesus Christ, our Lord, in the power of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and forever. Amen.
