  • PRAYER OF RECONCILIATION One: Risen Christ, hear the prayers of our hearts, not the dull confusion of our minds. All: Hear the tears we will not shed, the grief we hide in busyness, and bring your resurrecting love, weaving new life. One: Risen Christ, hear the prayers of our hearts, not the words of foolish boasting. All: Hear the doubts within our souls, dark denials freezing action, and shine your resurrection light, revealing new life. One: Risen Christ, hear the prayers of our hearts, not the fear we hide behind. All: Hear the longing for a fairer world, for God’s justice and compassion, and bring your resurrection power, enabling new life. —Silent prayer—

    AFFIRMATION OF FAITH—Apostles’ Creed Ecumenical Version

    I believe in God the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

    born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

    I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
