God of Grace, in Jesus of Nazareth you meet us face to face.
And then you invite us to follow a different path.
God of Grace, you see us, you know us, our strengths, our weaknesses, our shortcomings.
And still you invite us to join in the re-creation of the world.
God of Grace, we try to respond to the invitation, to join in the task
And sometimes it goes well, and sometimes it fails.
God of Grace, forgive our mis-steps, lead us on the new path, guide us in the task.
And our life will never be the same again.
In Christ God offers us New Life and Good News. We are forgiven and invited to live as citizens of the Kingdom.
With praise and thanks we share the Good News. And our life will never be the same again. Amen
