A #heartbeatprayer from the Diocese of Toronto

“May our Church be a place where everyone is accepted as a beloved child of God, and Love of God, neighbour and self are not just preached but also practised. May it be a place where we can learn how to be loving towards one another, a place where people feel safe enough to share and discuss their differences openly and have good debate without becoming angry or putting down their opponent. May our Church be one that reaches out to the poor and the marginalized and is not turned inward on itself. As a church may we seek to do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with our God. We pray this in the name of Jesus the Christ. Amen.”
