First Scripture Reading
Isaiah 65: 17-21
Gospel Reading
John 4: 43-54

Opening Prayer

God of Light, You are eternal dawn. You promise us renewed life. Our history of failure is not a prophecy of doom. You continue to create and recreate, believing in us. You breathe hope into us, as Jesus breathed new life into the official’s son. You are the God of Life. You overcome the tears, mourning and deaths which darken our lives, dampen our enthusiasm, and cloud our hope. You expand the walls of our Jerusalem that we might glisten with gold, vibrate with life, and celebrate with joy! You are throbbing within us, Holy, Healing Energy, promising a new day! Celebrate and dance in our midst.
