Every Wednesday at 12pm we invite you to pause & pray with us.
God of change and glory, we say that the only constant is change, but what is changing into what? Who is changing? Why are we changing? At the start of another academic year, we confront ideas that pull at cherished beliefs, changing us. Wrestling with identities and self-perceptions, we vow to change ourselves, unclear or unconvinced of our own sacred worth. Engaging with the world around us, we encounter a world that seems obsessed with change – the next new best thing, while rigidly holding on to patterns of injustice and oppression that keep us in our places. You call us to change our minds – to transform them, to renew them. In the midst of changing ways, let us discern the change that is good, right, perfect, drawing us ever closer to you. Amen.
We invite you to spend time in quiet meditation on this Romans 12:2 image. What transformation are you seeking? What transformation is God seeking? (Image: Romans 12:2 by HazelTheRock.)
