     A Pilgrim Liturgy

    Reconciliation 

    Lord God, bring us together as one,

    reconciled with you and reconciled with each other.

    You made us in your likeness,

    you gave us your Son, Jesus Christ.

    He has given us forgiveness from sin.

    Lord God, bring us together as one,

    different in culture, but given new life in Jesus Christ,

    together as your body, your Church, your people.

    Lord God, bring us together as one,

    reconciled, healed, forgiven,

    sharing you with others as you have called us to do. 

    In Jesus Christ, let us be together as one. Amen.
