One: We come to what is familiar. Time, place, people.
All: Watching God, help us to see them in new ways.
One: We come to what is called your house. The place of God.
All: Drive out from among us all that stands in the way of seeing you, being loved by you, and being transformed.
One: We come to ourselves, our bodies called your temples.
All: Make your home in us and our home in you. May your grace make us new and send us out.
