“Do not store up yourselves treasures on earth,
where moth and rust consume and where thieves
break in and steal;
But store up yourselves treasures in heaven,
Where neither moth nor rust consumes and
Where thieves do not break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
- Where do you look for true riches?
- Is it in a bank account or possessions?
- Or is it in our faith in God and the richness of
- Helping to create true justice and peace in this world.

Righteous God, in humility and repentance
we bring our failures in caring, helping, and loving,
we bring the pain we have caused others,
we bring the injustice in society of which we are a part,
to the transforming power of your grace.
Grant us the courage to accept the healing you offer
and to turn again toward the sunrise of your reign,
that we may walk with you in the promise of peace
you have willed for all the children of the earth,
and have made known to us in Christ Jesus. Amen.
