OPENING PRAYER

One:      In the begin­ning God cre­at­ed all things,

All:      and God saw that they were good.

One:     At our begin­ning, God cre­at­ed us, each unique and irre­place­able, loved and

want­ed by God, known and trea­sured by God even before He cre­at­ed us.

All:     In this new day, God cre­ates some­thing new so we will seek God in the 

            fresh­ness of this morn­ing, in the laugh­ter of friends, in the won­ders of life, 

            and in this beau­ti­ful place.

One:     Eter­nal God, your Spir­it moved on the waters — and there was light. Your Spir­it

also moved on the water of our bap­tism — and again, there was light in our souls

and hearts. Let your holy light shine on us today, as we remem­ber your cre­ation

and our spe­cial part in it. Open our eyes to see your pres­ence, our souls to sense

your pres­ence, and our hearts to love your pres­ence, ever here in your cre­ation,

and ever beyond it in eter­ni­ty. Amen.

* HYMN No. 2173                              Shine, Jesus, Shine
