For October 28, 2012: Proper 25B,

Come! Come you who are wounded and you who are whole!
We come bearing our wounds and scars, we come to worship.
Come! Come to hear about the one who is known to be a healer .
We come to sing and to pray, to feel God's healing love in our lives.
Come! Come young and old, come and take your place as members of the family of God.
We come to worship with our brothers and sisters.
Let us pray together...

God has gathered us together to worship this morning.
Now God is sending us back out to serve the world.
God calls us to embrace the energy of wholeness and healing.
And also to carry healing and wholeness to the world at large.
So go, filled with the hope of God, ready to proclaim that healing is possible, that we are not alone, that we are loved and accepted.
We go with opened eyes, ready to see the world as God sees it, ready to be agents of God's love.
As you go out into the world this week, may you see the face of Christ in everyone you meet.
And may everyone we meet see the fact of Christ in us. AMEN
