While lighting a candle to remind you of God’s Presence, have someone read the candle prayer:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
You have called us out of darkness into light.
Open our eyes to your presence,
Open our ears to your call,
Open our hearts to your love.
Share a consolation (what you are most grateful for) and a desolation (what you are least grateful for) from the past week.
Watch the video:
God does not rule creation through coercion, but through a cross
If there is time an inclination, pray for one another in the places where you want God to act in power, or ask one person to pray for the group.
Close with someone reading the blessing over you all as the candle is blown out.
May the Father of many resting places grant you rest;
May the Christ who stilled the storm grant you calm;
May the Spirit who fills all things grant you peace.
God’s light be your light,
God’s love be your love,
God’s way be your way.
