Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

an prayer of invitation

For the love shared
we are grateful
For provision and nurture
we are grateful
For kindness given
we are grateful.

For the sorrow we've caused,
we pray for forgiveness
For justices ignored,
we pray for forgiveness.

For the encounters with God today, in stranger and friend,
We bid you well.

For the encounters missed today,
We know that you always see us
even when we don't see you.

For now,
may we see you
in ways expected and unexpected.

We remember that you, Jesus of Nazareth,
lived through times of consolation and desolation.
And you walked into the lives of those people you met
inviting them to justice, truth, love and life.

May we be courageous.
May we learn.
May we love.
