           O Lord our God!

           You know who we are:

            Christians by conviction and Christians by convention,

             those who believe, those who half-believe.          

           But we all stand before You, in all our differences,

           yet alike in that we all are in the wrong with You

                 and with one another,

           that we all must one day die,

           that we all would be lost without Your grace,

                                   but, also, that Your grace is promised and made

                                   available to us all in Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,

           Have mercy upon us.

               is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

           A-men, A-men.


* THE PASSING OF THE PEACE OF CHRIST
