the word forming us together

In Worship: A Litany

One: O God of words, speak to us.

All: In the beginning was the Word
and the Word was with God
and the Word was God.
The Word was with God in the beginning.

One: In your wisdom and power, you spoke the world into being.
In your gentleness, you breathed life into creation.

All: Everything came into being through the Word,
and without the Word nothing came into being.

One: In you, we live and move and have our being.

All: What came into being through the Word was life,
and the life was light for all people.

One: You have told a great story
and invited us to be a part of it.

All: What came into being through the Word was life,
and the life was the light for all people.

One: You have told a great story
and invited us to be a part of it.

All: The Word became flesh
and made his home among us.

One: Through your Word, you offer us friendship.
Grant that our words may speak of your goodness;
let us speak of your love and light.

All: We have seen his glory,
glory like that of a father's only son,
full of grace and truth.

Amen.
