Creator God, You continue to make order of the world, to enter the chaos of our existence and to remind us that all You have made is indeed “very good.” May we remember Your call to be agents of Your goodness, of Your creative power, and of Your restorative presence. May we remember Your call for us to go into the world and through our loving lives, compel others to follow in the way of Your Son, Jesus, in whose name we pray. Amen.
Epistle Reading 2 Corinthians 13:11-13
The Gospel Reading Matthew 28:16-20

Remember a time when your hopes and dreams died. Remember your feelings of despair and powerlessness. Then remember your surprise when something stored within, when new seeds of hope sprouted forth! That is the power of the Holy Spirit! The power of Pentecost!
