Centering Music

*Responsive Intent
One: As honeybees and ant colonies make visible a unified spirit for a common purpose,
All: may we reflect our oneness in God.
One: As the trees and flowers make visible the mysterious way of dying and rising,
All: may we yield to a Divine Wisdom.
One: As the music of frogs and birds make visible the pulsing of creation’s praise,
All: may we worship with our every breath.
One: Gathered as one in the wisdom of God let us worship in the Spirit of Christ in whom we are pleased to dwell.

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.
