Collect Of The Word

Bountiful God,
you gather your people into your realm,
and you promise us food from your tree of life.
Nourish us with your word,
that empowered by your Spirit
we may love one another
and the world you have made,
through Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord,
who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
