A Collect to Abide in Christ’s Community

Great Shepherd, who tends the flock with care, keep us part of your community and a member of your fold, that we would be encouraged by one another and kept close to you, able to hear and understand your invitations and commands and kept safe and well by your hands, through you who reigns as king of all kings at the right hand of the Father in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘…but you do not believe, because you do not belong to my sheep.’ – John 10:26
