One year after the terrible flooding in our Province, we pause to remember how far down the road to healing we’ve travelled together this past year; how far we still have to go, journey with all those whose lives were broken by the flooding’s devastation; and the One who is ever Present with us on the way, as the Source of our strength and our hope. 

Our God of life, on this anniversary of the flood of 2013, we give you thanks for being with us in the midst of all the turmoil and the storm, and for how far you have brought us in our journey towards wholeness. But we also remember the great healing that still needs to take place. We pray especially for all who lost loved ones; we also pray especially all who lost homes, property, and livelihoods. We thank you for your promise that, as we continue to look to you, we shall find the guidance, strength, and love that will raise us all up from the depths to new life together. Through Christ Our Lord we pray. Amen.
