    God, we live in a broken and hurting world, immersed in a
    society that challenges our ability to hear your voice and to see

Sung Response: And it’s from the old I travel to the new;
               keep me travelling along with you.

    Your advice to turn the other cheek is often forgotten as our
    tempers blaze and we rage about an eye for an eye. What we
    call justice and what you offer us in reconciliation are often
    light years apart. Walking with you is hard, our feet are
    wounded, and the pace you set can be exhausting.

Sung Response: And it’s from the old I travel to the new;
               keep me travelling along with you.

    When we go with you, we find that what you do is beyond
    fairness, expectation, and generosity. You call us and the
    whole of creation into a state of grace, where justice and
    righteousness flow like a mighty stream, where gifts for the                         Statement of Purpose:
    people of God pour out abundance of life. Help us to learn the
    spiritual discipline to walk with you and to live in the            St. Andrew's By-The-Lake United Church strives to be…
    perfection of grace that you offer.

    Amen.                                                                personal growth for all ages, through worship and
