*Responsive Intent
One: We gather to praise you, O God, even though we don’t fully understand you.
All: You are a fire we cannot touch. You are a song we cannot quite sing.
One: You are a sea whose bottom we cannot search and a sky clouded over in endlessly changing patterns.
But, even so, your fire warms us, your song stirs us, your waters wash us clean and quench our thirst.
All: You shine on us and in us. And we praise you!

*Hymn                    There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy

Morning Prayer Concerns and Celebrations
Prayers of the People and Lord’s Prayer
Our Mother-Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kindom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kindom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
