Well met my friends

Wanderers return from holiday, the weather is warm, can it really be summer at last?

Olympics discussed, holiday adventures recounted, acquaintances renewed, prayers shared, all with the usual laughter and banter.

On with the summer seasons Anam Cara liturgy – and then to the coffee shop for more of the above.

Anam Cara

Creator God, we pause in your presence and hold our day before you.

Still us, calm us, guide us as we enter this day.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer

A short time of silence and reflection as we allow ourselves to focus on God’s creation around us.

Creator God, we hold this day before you, especially…

A short time of silence for personal prayer.

We hold before you Lord, all those who would usually be here with us at the bandstand…

These may be named aloud.

We hold before you Lord, all those we love, especially…

A short time of silence for personal prayer.

We hold before you Lord those who are sad because someone they love has died…

These may be named aloud.

We hold before you Lord those we know who are troubled this day…

These may be named aloud.

We hold before you all those we will meet this day…

A short time of silence for personal prayer.

Lord God, grant us the faith this day to truly walk in the light of Christ:

Christ as a light illumine and guide us

Christ as a shield overshadow us.

Christ under us; Christ over us;

Christ beside us on our left and on our right.

This day be within us and without us,

lowly and meek, yet all powerful.

Be in the mouth of each to whom we speak;

In the mouth of each who speaks to us.

Christ as a light, Christ as a shield,

Christ beside us on our left and on our right.

 We share bread and wine.

 Creator God, may your peace go with us wherever we will be this day

May you guide us through the
challenges, protect us when in need
and inspire us with your love.

May we acknowledge your presence
in all the human goodness we will see.

May you bring us home rejoicing to our place of rest this night.

Creator God, we now go into this day in the name of the Father
and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
