Living in the Spirit:  This joyful Eastertide, Away with sin and sorrow! Christ has risen! 
Prayer of Preparation:  Living God, for whom no door is closed, no heart is locked, draw us beyond our doubts till we see your Christ and touch his wounds as we touch the wounds of others in our world. Breathe on us with your abundant life that we may be filled with courage to love as we have first been loved in Christ, and to go out in the power of his Spirit to participate in your work of transformation. This we ask through Jesus Christ, our Savior, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
