Come in the name of the man God called "son"--The Son of God the one we call "brother!"  Worship the one whom Jesus called "Father"-Let us worship our Creator God, Lord and Parent of us all!"  Amen.

*Prayer of Praise

In you, O God, every family on earth receives its name.  Illumine the homes of this earth with the light of your love, granting courage to those who are hurt or lonely, endurance to those who care for sick family members, and wisdom to those in fearful times of change.  We thank you for gifts of love we have received from mother, father, spouse, child or companion.  As we have been loved by you and by others, so may we love.  Grant us your peace, through Jesus the Christ.  Amen. 


Gloria Patri: Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
