Prayer from Sunday's Liturgy

October 21, 2016


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
