This Week's Congregational Prayer:
Jesus, you are the fulfillment of the story of the Bible, the fulfillment of the story of humanity.  You perfectly resist evil, perfectly love people, perfectly preach the gospel, and perfectly lead us in living our lives for God’s glory.  As we think about our money (how we make it, why we save it, how we spend it), may we honor you with our thoughts, with our intentions, with our deeds, and with giving you the glory!  May your Spirit be at work in us and through us, and may your kingdom come!  Amen!
