Responsive Reading #637
I invite you now into a time of silence, and, when you are ready, to light a candle of hope and healing.
Minister: Peace be with you
Response: And also with you
Holy One, we bring to this moment our memories of past evils, those done to us, and those in which we are implicated. We bring the joys and sorrows of our hearts, and the milestones and celebrations of our lives. We bring our fears about the future and the connections we feel to this community, this city, this landscape, this world. Help us to hold all these things and yet to go forward into the week and into our lives in peace and in determination. Amen.
