From The Rev. Marya DeCarlen
We are living in uncertain times and fear can consume us. Many of us may not know what to do beyond engaging in safe behaviors for our own families.
Our faith commends us to to put our trust in God and be on the Way of Love toward God’s mission of reconciliation in the face of illness.
Now is the time for us to be the church that God wants us and needs us to be.
Let us pray together, as we discern how we are called to use “resurrection hope” and embrace others with JOY!
Prayer for a Pandemic
May we who are merely inconvenienced
Remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors
Remember those most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home
Remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close
Remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips
Remember those that have no safe place
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market
Remember those who have no margin
May we who settle in for a quarantine
Remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country,
let us choose love.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around
Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.
--by Cameron Bellm

Night prayers from our Seminarian, Brett Johnson. You can follow along in the Book of Common Prayer, page 127.
Also known as Complin, Night Prayer, or the Prayers at the End of the Day, Compline is the final church service (or office) of the day in the Christian tradition of canonical hours. The English word compline is derived from the Latin completorium, as Compline is the completion of the working day.
The word was first used in this sense about the beginning of the 6th century by St. Benedict. Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, Lutheran, and certain other Christian denominations with liturgical traditions prescribe Compline services.
Compline tends to be a contemplative Office that emphasizes spiritual peace. In many monasteries it is the custom to begin the "Great Silence" after Compline, during which the whole community, including guests, observes silence throughout the night until the morning service the next day.
