An empty bowl is brought from the body of the congregation and placed in a position visible to all.

Australian Churches and the Christmas Bowl have acted together to bring peace and hope into the world.

Help us to continue to act for peace.

As children of God we will share this year’s bowl

With people who are displaced, oppressed or living in poverty.

May their lives be filled with hope and peace.

Gracious and ever-loving God, Open our lives so we may courageously act for peace in the world. Open our hands to share what we have with those who have little.

As we dedicate this bowl may it be filled with the fruits of love, joy and peace.

So all people may know your goodness and receive your grace.

Amen
