This worship service is based on a resource for Mental Health Awareness week (May 2-9, 2021) which was produced by the Mental Health working groups of the United Church of Christ (USA) and The United Church of Canada. I (Rev. Elisabeth) adapted the prayers for our situation and express Thanks to the co-authors of " Radical Belonging".
