Second Sunday of Easter
O God, you have blessed us. We find it hard to name and explain your blessings so that they will make sense to others. Yet, they are real. We are grateful…for friends, for faith, for freedom. Now, we offer these gifts in thankfulness and in joy. We are giving money and rejoicing about it. We can’t explain it, even to ourselves, as we offer these gifts. We rejoice because we offer this money to be used for good in this world. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
