Dear Lord, yesterday the people
who live on our floor of these apartments
got together at dinner to share
stories and fellowship.
Some have lived in this building
since it was built 24 year ago.
Our newest resident
has been here less than a year.
Everyone is friendly.
No one has to cook
since we all eat in the dining room
of our retirement complex.
As we care for each other, Lord,
your love is shown.
A friend loves at all times, and kinsfolk are born to share adversity.
Hymn: Be Present at Our Table, Lord
