Eternal God,
out of your great generosity you brought the world into being and gave it life.
Then you gave it yourself, on the cross of human suffering. Such priceless, painful, giving!
Did you invite us here to show us that? Then show it to us once more, O God! Show us a different kind of world, a different cost of living, where the pain will not be eased by the money we spend on ourselves, but by the way we spend ourselves for others, and the way we value life.
Eternal God, out of your great generosity, make us generous; bring us into being. Amen
Holy Spirit,
making life alive, Moving in all things, root of all creative being, Cleansing the cosmos of every impurity, Effacing guilt, anointing sounds.
You are lustrous and praiseworthy life. You waken and re-awaken everything that is.
Almighty God,
whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified: mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
We are not people of fear:
We are people of courage.
We are not people who protect our own safety:
we are people who protect our neighbours’ safety.
We are not people of greed:
We are people of generosity.
We are your people God,
giving and loving,
wherever we are,
whatever it costs
For as long as it takes
wherever you call us.
