Hymn.     Come Let Us Sing of a Wonderful Love #57

Prayer: O Christ, had we faith enough to move mountains, without love what would we be? 
But you love us. 
Without your Spirit who lives in our hearts, what would we be? 
But you love us. 
Taking everything upon yourself, you open for us a way towards the peace of God, who wants neither suffering nor human distress. 
Spirit of the Risen Christ, spirit of compassion, spirit of praise, your love for each one of us will never fail, and we thank you. Amen. (a prayer from the Taize community, adapted.)

Scripture Lessons:       Revelation 21:1-6

                                     Psalm 148 p.871VU

                                     John 13:31-35

Hymn.      O Love that Wilt Not Let Me Go #658


Prayer:  God, kindle within our hearts today a flame of love for our neighbours, for our foes, for our friends, for our people, for the brave, for the cowardly, for the thoughtless ones. 
O Christ, son of Mary, in all that we love May we serve you, from the lowliest thing that lives, to the name that is highest of all. Amen ( a prayer from the Scottish Celtic tradition published in the Iona Community’s Wild Goose Worship Group’s A Wee Worship Book, 4th incarnation.)
