Faith groups play an essential role in supporting health and wellness in communities across the country; and have a demonstrated history of providing spiritual, social, and emotional assistance for men and women struggling with substance use disorders.  Thus, faith leaders will share their stories on how they are engaging their communities to address the opioid epidemic, building coalitions, reducing stigma and building trauma informed congregations.  Additionally, speakers will highlight the unprecedented opportunities that exist with the Affordable Care Act’s defined substance abuse treatment benefits and new parity requirements.

Prayer for the people of Beirut

Light of new hope

God of refuge,
hear our prayer
as we hold the people of Beirut
in our hearts at this time.
Fill us with compassion
and move us to reach out in love.

In your mercy,
bring comfort to those who mourn,
healing to those who are injured,
shelter to those who are homeless
sustenance to those who hunger.

Give strength to those who are working
to rebuild shattered lives,
and protect those who are vulnerable
especially in a time of coronavirus.

Lead us in your ways
so that together we may bring
the light of new hope
wherever there is destruction and despair.

We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
