faith, order & witness opening prayer

God of all creation, you have journeyed with the church through seasons of Lent and Easter; we have experienced the glory of the cross, the surprise of resurrection morning, and celebrated the Lordship of the Ascended Christ.

Today as we again gather gather from with own diverse individual histories and varied ecclesiastical traditions, we long to understand each others perspectives and we yearn for essential unity in Christ.

During this green and growing season of ordinary time, may our conversations continue to bear fruit in ways that extend far beyond this place and this time.

In the name of Jesus Christ, crucified and risen for the life of all creation—Amen!
