Bishop Ough recently recorded a sermon to share with congregations to use as part of worship as they wish. In the sermon, titled "The Home of God," he shared a prayer so that we might all feel blessed and feel God's presence in our homes.

"Holy God, we celebrate that you are already present with us in our home or wherever we might be two or three gathered together. Thank you for your many blessings. Bring healing to those suffering from COVID-19. Protect those who are caring for the sick and grieving. Strengthen those who are providing our essential services. In this season when we cannot embrace one another, we pray, O God, you will embrace us with your grace and love. Come into our hearts anew this day through our worship and the proclamation of your Word. May we be filled with joy and be shaped more fully into the image of Christ for the sake of your world.  Amen."
