Lord Jesus Christ, Wisdom of God, we praise you. Word everlasting, we bless you. Light undying, we glorify you. Fountain of mercy, we adore you. Joy of the saints, we worship you, world without end. Amen.Clement of Alexandria (c.150-c.215)
We worship you, the one God,
the God of our forebears, who shared the gospel in far flung lands,
the God of our generation, which has struggled to maintain your mission for our time.
Move us from patronage to partnership, from tradition to innovation, as one Church in one world.
Help us to identify your way and your will so that together we may communicate the gospel to the next generation.
