Eternal Light, shine into our hearts. Eternal Goodness, deliver us from evil. Eternal Power, be our support. Eternal Wisdom, scatter our darkness. Eternal Pity, have mercy on us, that with all our mind, soul and strength we may seek your face and finally by your mercy be brought to everlasting life; through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Alcuin of York (c. 735-804)


All-embracing God,
   whose love is beyond our understanding and
   whose vision is beyond our imagination,
grant us:
   the courage to venture outside our comfort zone,
   the compassion to encounter those we would have preferred to steer
   clear of, and
   the recklessness to challenge the powerful, reconcile the divided
   and heal the wounds opened up by those who would limit your grace. Amen.

Bruce Thompson, Lincolnshire District Chair
