On this beautiful Sabbath day, we are reminded that God rested after six days of creation.  Rest and take a few deep breaths to settle in.

Gracious Lord, we give you thanks that you have created us in your image.  As the nation celebrates Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and work, may we remember that all people are created in your image and have been given unique gifts to serve.  May we celebrate diversity as children of a living and creative God.  And all God’s children said, AMEN!

Close with the Lord’s Prayer and/or the Doxology:

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
Praise God you creatures here below.
Praise God above, you heavenly hosts.
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
