A Time of Silence

Praise God from whom all blessings flow; Praise God, all creatures here below; Praise
God for all that love has done; Creator, Christ, and Spirit, One. Amen.
(If you want to give today, please find the offering plate at either entrance.)

*Prayer of Dedication
Holy God, May the gifts we share today and throughout this week nudge us to dream your
dreams. May our giving inspire us to embrace your visions for our world. Holy Spirit,
enliven our souls to create your realm of justice and peace on earth. Amen.


Unison Prayer of Reflection and Growth
Loving God, Divine Comforter, Peace is absent from our hearts. From pain to grief, and from turmoil to frustrations, we yearn
for what we lack. We ache for the pains and injustices of this world to cease. What we forget is
to pause and voice our concerns to you. How can we better integrate your presence in our
lives? When have we forgotten to include you in our joys and heartaches? Move us to seek
you and speak the burdens of our hearts to you. May your Spirit refill our souls with peace.

Assurance of Grace

Prayer after receiving
All: We thank you, God, for inviting us to this table where we have known the presence of
