offering prayers

offerings of ourselves, our symbols

We have brought our offerings of ourselves, our symbols, our personal meanings and intentions. We have shared with each other these wishes and burdens and gifts. Let us now re-collect them to weave them into the patchwork of our lives, to be part of the quilt we share with others, to warm their lives and our world.

symbols of hand and heart

We bring our gifts of money and food, symbols of hand and heart. We recognise the diversity and abundance of the world, and acknowledge that for many, such simple things as clean air and water, shelter and food, are scarce. In offering these gifts, we take part in Creation’s transforming power: turning the mundane into the miraculous, receiving and giving of ourselves.

For all creation, we bring our gifts. With all creation, we give thanks. Amen
