Kyrie: Pg. 184 ELW
Thanksgiving for Baptism: Joined to Christ in the waters of Baptism, we are clothed with God’s mercy and forgiveness. Let us Give Thanks for the gift of baptism.
We give you thanks O God, for in the beginning, you created us and placed us in a well-watered garden. In the desert, you promised pools of water for the parched, and you gave us water from the rock. When we did not know the way, you sent the Good Shepherd to lead us to still waters. On this day, you shower us again with the water of life.

Gracious Lord, we thank you that your holy spirit renews the church in every age. Pour out your holy spirit on your people. Keep us steadfast in your word, protect us in times of trial, and bestow on the church all throughout the world your saving peace. Through Jesus Christ, our saviour. Amen.
First Reading: Jeremiah 31:31-34
Response to Reading: Word of God, Word of life, Thanks be to God.
God is our Refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore, we will not fear though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea. (Refrain)
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the most high.
God is in the midst of the city which shall not be moved,
God will help it at the dawn of the day. (Refrain)
Be still and know that I am God, I am exalted among the nations; I am exalted in the earth The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. (Refrain)

This is the air I breathe, this is the air I breathe.
