  Prayer of Confession

God of fruitful labor, work sometimes brings out the worst in us. At home, at school, in the workplace, even in our relationship with you, we too easily question what others do and get, instead of taking care of our own business. Take away our bitterness. Teach us the art of the careful complaint. Give us grateful hearts, we pray. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer ~ Bishop Sally Dyck and the NIC Cabinet (Video) (Audio)

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, and the power, and the glory forever.  Amen.

*Following the Light of Christ

You can choose to either keep your candle burning throughout the day, or extinguish it as you sing/listen.

Benediction    Go forth in thanksgiving for God’s generous gift of grace which does not conform to the patterns of this world, and holds all as beloved. Amen.
