God we give you thanks for the gift of friendship, for time spent together even across distance, and the miracle of laughter. We give thanks for those who continue to fight to fight for the lives of all people, working on the front lines of this pandemic. Give us the strength and courage to stay the course and do what we must to protect our friends and neighbors from the virus. In the name of the one who loves us and sets us free, we pray. Amen.
We invite you to spend time in quiet meditation on this image.
