Homily

(silent meditation after homily)

An Affirmation of Christian Faith

We believe in God above us

Maker and Sustainer of all life, of sun and moon, of water and earth, of male and female.

We believe in God beside us

Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh, born of a woman, servant of the poor, tortured and nailed to a tree. A man of compassion, he died forsaken; he descended into the earth to the place of death.

On the third day he rose from the tomb; he ascended into heaven to be everywhere present; and his kingdom will come on earth. 

We believe in God within us

the Holy Spirit of Pentecostal fire, life-giving breath of the church, spirit of healing and forgiveness, source of resurrection and eternal life.

Amen.

Divine Gift (Modified)

Sacrifice became for us the gift of life

We hold it dear, you are always here.

When trials appear

Help us Lord to trust, not fear.

Let stillness draw us in

To the One within.

You are here with us.

You are here in us.

You are here as us.
