Opening Prayer

Place an open bible at the center of your group. Prepare small containers of milk and honey and spoons for each person in your group.

LEADER: Spirit, in you we live and move and have our being.

ALL: We live in the shelter of your wings, in your shadow, God Most High.

LEADER: You are our refuge, the firm ground of our exis.tence.

ALL: We will find you with us as we quiet and center ourselves.

LEADER: Close your eyes. Breathe in and out deeply for one minute. Breathe out stresses and worries; breathe in the freshness of the Holy Spirit.

ALL: Open us to the Word you speak to us today for our world.
