Grace and peace to you from God our Mother and Father and from Jesus the Christ.
Friends, in God we have been graced with wisdom and knowledge,
we are not lacking in any spiritual gift.
We are continually encouraged and strengthened,
called as partners in Christ’s mission of love and service to the world.
We gather in hope, we worship with the Spirit at play in our hearts.
Praise be to the God of goodness and light!

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.
