Leader:   We gather as God's people in a world divided and distressed.

People: Yet we gather as one people, united by God.

Leader:   We gather as God's people, journeying to Jerusalem.

People: Yet we gather as one people, steadfastly traveling forward together.

Leader:   We gather as God's people, frightened by whirlpools of worry which spin us out of control.

All:         Yet we gather as one people following in the unfailing steps of Jesus the Christ, whose name we praise.

Praises, Joys and Concerns

 

Pastoral Prayer and Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,

the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
