Gracious, loving God, we believe all persons are created in Your image.

We believe all of us belong to Your family.

We are Your kin-dom on earth.

Our hearts are heavy as some people attempt to exclude from Your family our daughters and sons who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons.

We are pained by the brokenness in Your family.

Inspired by Your unconditional love for all of us, we believe our families are Fortunate Families because all our children are created in Your image.

Inspire us with Your Spirit and bless us with energy to be witnesses of love and compassion, so justice may flow like a river throughout our church and world.

We sing out with joy as Your ambassadors of peace and love now and in the future.
