As new green shoots emerge from the earth so let your love Lord spring up in us..let that love pass from us to others in a wonderful circle of friendship and community.

Guide us to situations where our witness of you, will set seed and grow..just as Spring fulfills it’s promise..give us courage and clarity to speak about your promise to us..to love us always through all the changing scenes of our lives.. a love that goes beyond words and lasts even to the ends of the earth.

Amen.
