Opening Prayer

         Holy God, who in the gift of Jesus Christ was able to cross up the bad news of our human condition with the good news of divine intervention, give us eyes to truly see your Son who is our salvation, that, being inspired once again by his living and dying and reliving, we may ourselves live in simple and faithful following. Amen.

Pastoral Prayer


written closer to the time (if not at the moment)


Unison Prayer

O God,
      your steadfast love has been ours for generations.
Through Christ, you brought us out of the abyss of death
      and into the light of eternal love.
With joy and thanksgiving, we proclaim our salvation,
      remembering Christ's death and resurrection,
      until he comes again.
As we break bread and share the cup together,
      may Christ be present with us,
      and may the Spirit bind us together 
            as Christ's body in this world. AMEN
