What does WONDERS mean?
"Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will perform wonders among you."
Last year we were reminded that sanctification lies in being FULLY ALIVE in our authentic selves as children of God.
This year we will learn where sanctification will lead us. At this point in history, society, and our individual lives, it is increasingly difficult to look toward the future with hope and expectation. Together, let's be reminded of God's identity and promise - we have a God of WONDER and He will perform wonders among us!
King of all creation, the beginning and the end, our author and creator - all glory and honor and praise belongs to you. The sun and the stars shine for you. The rivers and the wind whisper your praises. The rocks cry out to you. All of creation bows before you.
Father, we come before you as your humble children. We offer this 2021 SFC USA National Conference - Wonders - to you. May your Holy Spirit lead us to humility and reverence. May your presence fill us with joy and wonder. We seek you with all our hearts, knowing confidently that we will find you in the quiet, in the still, in the small, and also in the grand and wonderful and powerful. We pray that we might walk with you, filled with a renewed sense of wonder. That the familiar may be new and the new may be familiar.
Show us, o God, the wonders that a life with you brings. Remind us, o Father, that as your sons and daughters, we are wonderful and loved. Stir us with your Spirit, that we might journey to greater heights and accomplish many things with you.
May we gather safely to participate in the joy your Holy Spirit brings when two or more are present.
Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, Pray for us!
