Prayer from Sunday's Liturgy

Holy God

The story in the stone

the light in the glass

the silence in the sanctuary

Holy God

the gospel of love unfolding

the means of grace unconditional

the way of truth uncompromising

Holy God

the cross at the centre of everything

the giving of self through everything

the dying to self for everything

Holy God

the stone that rolls in the morning

the break of the darkness at sunrise

the footprint in the grass at dawn

Holy God

the eternal community that gathers round these stories

the long hope that holds these stories to be true

the deep love that trusts these stories will change us

In these ways

from our inheritance of faith

and our hope for the future

may we know you Holy God

beyond the wood and stone

may we know you

shaping community

redeeming the world

loving neighbour

In these ways

where faith is a purpose

and love is an intent

and grace is a means to others closer into you

may our souls find you

establishing your house

your generation

your family

that all that has shaped this building

over many centuries

plays out still

in our living towards each other

and the life we share with each other

May these stones

be just the echo

of the living community you build

that worships here

but lives everywhere

where there is need

and a calling

and a neighbour

Holy God

word of life

body of Christ

community of faith

In such ways we belong to you

and we give thanks

So be it
