Text (excluding hymns) by Marilyn Ferrell
Presider: O God, the Source and Unity of the Universe
All: May we abide in you
Presider: O Christ in us
All: May you fill our Spirit
May we follow Jesus, born among us, who walked with the outcast, the marginalized, the oppressed and the homeless and said to us, ‘[Whenever] you do it to the least of these, my brothers and sisters, you do it unto me’ – calling us to see you in all who suffer.
As we gather around your table, we are reminded that Jesus accepted the cross on Golgotha to share our suffering and identify with our pain, our woundedness and our separation.
