The following are the opening prayers written by Deb for the WBB service which focused on God as pilgrim. The service took place on October 11, 2022, the day after Thanksgiving.
Creator God, Pilgrim, Sojourner: As we walk with you, from day to day, We wonder: How is it that you never tire? We are in awe, But our feet are sore And we miss home. It is so hard to imagine what’s ahead And so easy to remember what we left behind. May we not forget that you are with us, And you are the Eternal One, Who was and is and is to come. This morning, we pause to take stock To look at you, O God, And give you thanks To see how far you’ve guided us, And give you thanks To hear your clear, clean whisper, And give you thanks To be refreshed and inspired for our next steps And give you thanks. For your word, for your love And for your guidance, O God, Who was and is and is to come We give you thanks. Amen.
