(based on Philippians 1: 21-30)
One: Let us continue in our work.
All: Let us live in manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.
One: Let us be in one spirit, striving side by side,
All: Let us find Christ in our struggles,
One: Let us be surprised by the joy in our faith,
All: Let us find you, O God, in all our work. Amen.
