Ubi Caritas

A reading from Genesis 3:8-15

Psalm 130

Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD.


Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!


If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?


But there is forgiveness with you, so that you may be revered.


I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;

Psalm 130

my soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.


O Israel, hope in the LORD! For with the LORD there is steadfast love, and with him is great power to redeem.


It is he who will redeem Israel from all its iniquities.

A reading from

2 Corinthians 4:13-5:1

Be Thou My Vision

A Creed from the United Church of Canada

We are not alone, we live in God’s world. We believe in God:

         Who has created and is creating,

         Who has coming in Jesus, the Word made flesh,

                  To reconcile and make new,

         Who works in us and others by the Spirit.

We trust in God.

Creed,

cont...

We are called to the Church:

         To celebrate God’s presence,

         To love and serve others,

         To seek justice and resist evil,

         To proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen, our judge and our hope.

 

In life, in death, in life beyond death, God is with us.

Eucharist

The Lord be with you. And also with you.

 

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them to the Lord.

 

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give our thanks and praise.

 

...we praise your name and join their unending hymn:

Holy, holy, holy Lord,

God of power and might,

heaven and earth are full of your glory, Hosanna in the Highest.

Syria, 3rd century--oldest, extant sanctus in a Eucharistic prayer

Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
        on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
    as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
    and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours,
    now and forever. Amen.
