One of the problems in relationships are the barriers that stand in the way of truly getting to know and to love each other. As we come to the Table today, let us remember that, through his sacrifice, Jesus tore down every barrier between us and God. All are welcome here, because the Host, Jesus Christ has opened the way for all of us.
Let us pray.
God of us all, We thank you that you have opened the way for us all to your Table. As we come into your presence today, instill in us that same Spirit that will overcome all barriers and open the way for others. Thank you for these symbols of bread and cup that remind us of how much you gave in love for us all.
In Jesus name, AMEN.
