As we share our lives with one another, there are many opportunities to come together in fellowship and service. We cherish this time together as God call us to do.
O God, in the course of this busy life, give us times of refreshment and peace; and grant that we may so use our
leisure to rebuild our bodies and renew our minds, that our spirits may be opened to the goodness of your creation;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
