GREETING

PSALM 50 Mary-Ellen Petrich

Spirit is everywhere
In the eternal circle of sunrise and sunset
In the beauty of the earth and in the power of her storms
In the laws that are written in our hearts, and
in the voice of conscience that marches us to goodness.
God is spirit.
We may need ritual, but what God wants is Our hearts
open in gratitude, or in a cry for help, or
in willingness to treat our neighbors decently
seek the truth
live in love.
These ways bring us to God.
(from Christine Robinson’s Psalms for a New World)

THE DISCIPLE’S PRAYER

Eternal Spirit,
Source of all Life,
Loving One in whom we discern heaven,
May knowledge of your holiness inspire all peoples,
And may your commonwealth of peace and freedom flourish on earth
Until all of humanity heeds your call to justice and compassion.
May we find the bread that we need for today,
And for the hurts we cause one another
May we be forgiven in the same measure that we forgive.
In times of trial and temptation, help us to be strong;
When life seems overwhelming, help us to endure;
And thus from the yoke of selfishness deliver us.
May your presence reign in human hearts,
Now and forever.
Amen and Amen.
