Creator God, you formed us not only in your image, but as unique individuals whose experiences and gifts prepare us for the ministry to which you have called us. May we celebrate the diversity of one another’s gifts and ministries and find ways to support one another as we all attempt to live fully into our parts as the body of Christ. May we defer judgment and instead build upon the gifts of others. Let us recognize that you call each and everyone of us to follow a path that is ours alone. May we celebrate when we journey along that path with others for a few steps and many miles. Help us to be supportive of others we meet along the way. Amen.
