In this photo, the Mennonite congregation closest to Port-au-Prince, in a village 45 minutes away, gathers for worship on January 17. About 100 people sit under a tree outside; the church building is empty. No one wants to be under a roof right now, unsure of how stable buildings remain. (MCC photo by Daryl Yoder-Bontrager)

Congregations around the world prayed for the people of Haiti on Sunday, January 17. At Eighth Street Mennonite Church in Goshen, Ind., Phil Rush, director of MCC's Resource Generation Network, shared his reflections and marveled at the aptness of the Isaiah 62:4 lectionary text:

      "No more will anyone call you Rejected, and your country will no more be called Ruined. You'll be called My Delight, and your land Married, Because God delights in you and your land will be like a wedding celebration. " (The Message)

The peace prayer that follows is by Allison Brenneman.
