Genesis 1:24-31

We are made in God’s image, which means we are meant to be in connection and relationship with God and one another.
We are therefore called to acts of reconciliation and love.


The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
Thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done, on earth as in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
