Silence and Stillness before God (2 minutes)
May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus. Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Written by Rob Seward
My friend enters into my soul
and walks with me there; and I into his.
We learn to nourish and purify our two hearts,
while we talk about faith and these somber times.
My faith in love is manifest in my friend:
I have to love a world from which one like him can spring.
Lord Jesus, may our love for You and for one another grow deep, rich, and extravagant as we walk with one another.
