People:  We come to the light so that it will be clear that

                God is involved in all the good things that we do.

 

PRAYER OF INVOCATION

 

Holy God, you did not send your Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him. We believe in Him and are not condemned, so we come with our thanksgivings and our petitions in the name of the only perfect Son of God, Jesus Christ. Amen.
