Lord, before ever you made us, you loved us. Nor has your
love ever slackened, nor ever shall. In love all your works
have begun, and in love they continue. In this love our life
is everlasting, and in this love we shall see you and be glad
forever. Amen.

Julian of Norwich (1342-1416)

Lord Jesus,
alpha and omega,
our beginning and our end,
rejoicing that you are with us in the midst of life, we
for those who have lost touch with their
origins and roots,
for people whose lives lack aim, purpose
and direction,
and for all of us to know your
as we journey daily from
our past selves to our future with you. Amen.

Stephen Bales, supernumerary minister, West Penwith
