Leader: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

Leader: Do not avoid the light of God but expose yourself to it.

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.
