United Church of Christ at Valley Forge
45 Walker Road | Wayne, PA 19087
Good morning Friends! When the world is dark and full of fear, it makes it hard to see God. When we do not feel loved and our peace has been disturbed, it makes it difficult to see the light. Christ opens eyes with the gift of sight, Christ is the light of the world. Seek the one who brings sight to the blind.
As you prepare to seek Christ this morning, I invite you to create a small altar where you are. To consider lighting a candle, using fresh flowers, add photos of loved ones, bring into your space things that help you experience God. Once your altar is set, begin by reciting this prayer "Gracious God, who created us in your own image, open our eyes to see your presence moving in powerful ways. In your light all things are made clear. Send your spirit now to dwell with us as we worship together from the sanctuary of our homes. In separate spaces but on one accord we dedicate this time to you. Amen."

For Sunday 3/22/2020
May God, who comes to us in the things of this world, bless your eyes and be in your seeing. May Christ, who looks upon you with deepest love, bless your eyes and widen your gaze. May the Spirit, who perceives what is and what may yet be, bless your eyes and sharpen your vision. May the Sacred Three bless your eyes and cause you to see.
