A reading from Galatians 6:14-18
May I never boast of anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the
world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. For neither circumcision nor
uncircumcision is anything; but a new creation is everything! As for those who will
follow this rule – peace be upon them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
From now on, let no one make trouble for me; for I carry the marks of Jesus branded on
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers and sisters. Amen.
Let us pray
Good and Gracious God, may we join in your new creation, following the Way of your
Son, Jesus Christ; his Way and his cross. Through Your redeeming Grace, guide us
along this path, all to your glory. Amen.
