Who We Are Made to Be
Prayer of St. Francis Lord make me an instrument of your peace Where there is hatred let me sow love Where there is injury, pardon Where there is doubt, faith Where there is despair, hope Where there is darkness, light And where there is sadness, joy O divine master grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console to be understood as to understand To be loved as to love For it is in giving that we receive it is in pardoning that we are pardoned And it's in dying that we are born to eternal life Amen
Throughout our "Where the Rubber Hits the Road" series we have been challenged to let our faith be the guide for how we live. This spiritual practice is not new, but historically has been a way of living that we practice as Christians.
After singing the prayer of St. Francis in worship on Sunday, I am reminded that we join with some awesome company when we practice faith in action. Throughout the week, I have been meditating on this prayer as a reminder of who we become when we live with the grace of God. May this continue to be a reminder of who we are created to be.
