Readings: 2 Peter 3:1-13
Sentence: All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. Ephesians 2:3
Collect: You O God are the living Word, you elude us, yet surprise us by your presence: encourage us to seek you; and let our searching help others find their way; through Jesus Christ our Lord who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
