Responsive Reading (Congregational response in bold)

Where ignorance, self-love, and insensitivity have fractured life in community,

give us your light, O God of love.

Where injustice and oppression have broken the spirit of peoples,

give us your light, O God of freedom.

Where hunger and poverty, illness and death have made life an unbearable burden,

give us your light, O God of grace.

Where suspicion and hatred, conflict and war have challenged your goodness,

give us your light, O God of peace.

Eternal God, remove the blindness of the nations and peoples so that they may walk in the light of love;
remove the ignorance and stubbornness of nations and peoples so that they may drink from the fountains of your goodness.

Amen.
