Prayer of Thanksgiving 

Risen Christ,

We celebrate your gift of resurrection,
casting off the shadows of our past selves
to embrace the fullness of life found in you.

Open us to new expressions of your love for us,
so we might come to welcome our whole selves,
and better welcome one another.

May this offering be used to do right,
that as we walk in newness of life,
we may be a people who do right together.

Encourage and energize this church,
to dream new visions and to risk the unknown,
all for your sake.
