OPENING RESPONSES

Grace, mercy and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

All: And also with you.

Life is a journey on many different roads

All: But God is always with us.

Sometimes we lift our faces to the sun

All: And God is with us.

But then there is the hard journey through pathways of pain and fears in dark places.

All: But God is with us. Nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus.

Let us join with Martha, saying
THE LORD'S PRAYER:

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory,

for ever and ever.

Amen
