~Scripture Sentence~

This is eternal life, that we may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. 

John 17:3





O God,

whose Son, Jesus, prayed for his disciples,

and sent them into the world

to proclaim the coming of your kingdom:

by your Holy Spirit,

hold the Church in unity,

so that, breaking bread together,

we may be one with Christ in faith and love and service,

now and forever.
