Though we are in different places, still we gather.

Though the days are full of challenge, still we give ourselves to God.

Though we have closed our buildings to help keep our people safe, we are still the Church!

Though we cannot see the future, we know that our lives are in the hands of the Holy.

With joy, with gratitude, with ever deepening faith, we come in this moment to worship you, O God. So may the

meditations of our hearts and the words of our mouths be acceptable in your sight, we pray. AMEN.
