O Lord Our God,
you gave your Son
to show us how to love.
Here in our retirement community
love and care for others
is shown in many ways:
from visiting those who are sick,
to serving youth in the town
and local schools.
People here are patient and kind
to each other in our various
infirmities. You, O Lord God,
have taught us your ways
in Sunday school and church.
You have built this caring community.
Thank you, Lord God.
He said to him, “’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
