a community creating for the relentless return of Sunday

prayer of dedication: here and now

We are sometimes a fearful people, Holy One.
But today, we place our trust, our hope and our faith in you.
Use these gifts – and all our lives – for the creation of your Reign on earth,
not in some distant future but here and now.
We give thanks.
Amen.
