“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
for he has appointed me to preach Good News to the poor.” Luke 4:18
In a world filled with violence and war,
we celebrate the promise of peace.
In a world filled with tyranny and oppression,
we celebrate the promise of justice for all.
In a world filled with hunger and thirst,
we celebrate the promise of plenty for all.
Our hope is in the name of the Almighty God,
the Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer of heaven and earth.
