Eternal God, as you have taught us to keep all your commandments by loving you and our neighbour: grant us the spirit of peace and the gift of grace, that we may be devoted to you with our whole heart and united to each other with a pure will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Ambrosian Missal (8th century)


God of all, we give thanks for those who can speak of their memories of distant lands and other cultures and open for us a window on to a wider world. Help them to tell of how our common faith can make us one with those who dwell in foreign lands. How, though drawn from far-flung parts, we can journey together in faith. Help all who confess that Jesus is Lord to share in witnessing to his love. Whatever our mother tongue, may we acknowledge our parent God and, in our coming together, may we realise that we form one family of faith, one people, journeying to you. Amen. 

Wendy Kilworth-Mason,
superintendent minister, Whitehaven Circuit
