*Offering Prayer: Gracious God, Looking inward, we recognize our own hesitation to see and believe what we can accomplish together. Give us the courage to bring the vision of your hospitality and justice to life now and for the future.

In the name of the one who called all to the true treasure of life with God, Jesus the Christ. Amen.
