A prayer from our Discernment Committee: Almighty God, you know the needs of your Church in every place: look graciously upon us, the people of Christ Church Redding, and grant us the guidance of your Holy Spirit as we seek a new rector for this parish.
Give us discernment, wisdom, and confidence in your timing.
Guide the members of our committee, as they labor to be faithful in seeking your will.
We pray for the life of our parish, that we may continue to be strengthened in our mission to be Jesus Christ’s heart, hands and feet to our neighbors no matter where they are on their journey of faith.
Bless us with mutual trust and respect, courage, and foresight as you shepherd our community through its journey.
Grace us with continuous direction and inspire us toward genuine self-reflection.
All this we ask as we walk in your ways to the glory of your name. Amen.
