Illumination: hearts burn
you opened the scriptures to your disciples
and made their hearts burn within them.
Open our eyes, our ears, and our hearts,
so we might recognize you once again
in these words of scripture,
by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

CTW: be with us
Risen One, you accompany us on our journey, but we don’t always see you or know you are there
Be with us as we meet in fellowship today
Our hearts burn within us as you teach us your Way, and we want to love as you love
Be with us as we follow your Way
Our eyes are opened as you break bread and pour wine for us.
Be with us as we remember your life, death, and resurrection. Amen!
