People: And open our minds to the possibilities of inclusion.
Leader: As we come to worship, let us leave outside our notion of generosity.
People: And open our hearts to the possibility of giving beyond our typical gift.

O God, we thank you for your Word and for the eternal truths

 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, forever. Amen.
