Unwrapped, Unopened Gifts

Think about some of the best gifts you've ever received. But imagine how different your life would be if you never took the time to unwrap, open, and enjoy them? Come join us as we put a bow on our summer series - The Gift of a Sacred Summer as we review all of the gifts that were offered and the value that each has in our lives if only we took the time to engage and enjoy them.

Faithful God, you draw near to us
in our joy and in our grief,
in our hope and in our despair.
When we are bowed down, you raise us anew.
We turn to you now in search of your healing touch.
God of compassion and love,
move among us this hour.
Open our eyes, dispel our fears,
and show us the real life you have to offer.
We pray this in the name of the Risen One,
Jesus the Christ.  Amen.
