O God of light and joy,
we praise you for the gift of your dear Son,
the promised one who comes to establish true peace.
In response to this wondrous gift to us,
we offer these gifts to you.
Receive the offerings we present,
so they might be a blessing to all who are in need.
We commit ourselves to joyful service in Jesus’ name. Amen.
