Graduation Sunday Liturgy

This is my adaptation of the Book of Worship's "Prayer for Graduates" BOW #536 into a responsive liturgy, weaving in the first/last verses of "This is a Day of New Beginnings" UMH #383. Hope it is helpful.

Liturgy of Celebration for our Graduates

Leader: God of truth and knowledge,
by your wisdom we are taught the way and the truth.
 Bless our graduates as they now finish this course of study.

All: We thank you for those
who taught and worked beside them,
and all who supported them along the way.

Leader: Walk with the graduates
as they leave and move forward in life.
Take away their anxiety and confusion of purpose.

All: Strengthen their many talents and skills,
instill in them a confidence in the future you plan,
where energies may be gathered up
and used for the good of all people.

Leader: For the graduates, this truly is a day of new beginnings,
a time to remember and move on,
and a time to believe what love is bringing.

All: May they always know that
Christ is alive and goes before us,
to show and share what love can do.
This is a day of new beginnings,
our God is making all things new.
