ALL: He has gone before us. Yet he is with us for all time. Alleluia!

Leader: God who reconciles, bless the food we are about to eat, and let this meal together be a sign of the unity we share for all time in the body of our risen Savior, Jesus Christ, the Lord.

ALL: Amen.

AFTER THE MEAL

Leader: We thank you, the one Lord, for nourishing this family and molding us into a holy people. United in Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, we give you praise both now and for ever.
