Lighting of the Peace Candle – Rachel Robinson

Our tradition at CUCC is to light a peace candle at the beginning of each worship service to center ourselves around the Peace of God. I invite you to join us in lighting the peace candle…

All: We pray for peace
in our hearts,
in our homes,
in our communities,
in our nations,
and in our worlds.

All: We have seen the star in the sky and have come to worship the Christ Child.

Community Prayer and Lord’s Prayer – Rachel

Our God,
Who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
forever and ever. Amen.
