A Collect for Peace

Sanderlings


O God, the author of peace and lover of concord, to know you is eternal life and to serve you is perfect freedom: Defend us, your humble servants, in all assaults from our enemies: that we, surely trusting in your defense, may not fear the power of any adversaries; through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord; Amen.

  1. We're starting a new series on Colossians this Sunday, so these collects for peace and grace set a good tone. Thanks!

  2. Your picture of the sanderlings just seems to exemplify "concord" and "freedom" - a lovely image for these words. Beautiful egret yesterday too! I've seen little egrets in East Anglia and they're always a joy to see.

    1. Thanks, Antonia - a group of sanderlings seems to be a good example of nearly everything, in my book at least. Glad you're enjoying the photos!
