A Collect to Love All our Neighbors
Loving God, who cares for your creation like a gentle shepherd cares for a flock, give us hearts that bear compassion and love for all those around us, that we would see the people of the world and love them, desiring their good as you do and taking action to connect and care for all those who are in our path, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who intercedes for all of us to you in the Holy Spirit. Amen.
'Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of the robbers?" He said, "The one who showed him mercy." Jesus said to him, "Go and do likewise."' - Luke 10:36-37
