WELCOME AND MORNING GREETING
Call To Worship:
L: When the people of God were hungry
P: God rained manna upon them, and the ate until they were full
L: When the people of God are hungry
P: God calls us to taste the goodness of God’s gifts, and to share our bread
With one another.
HYMN: “Fill My Cup Lord” #481
Call To Confession
Prayer Of Confession:
You are the Bread of Life, O God, and you promise that we will never hunger again, but we do hunger, O Lord, and often for the wrong things. You feed us with grace, but we hunger for achievements. You offer us peace, but we hunger for control. You bless us with plenty to share, but we are quick to hoard the gifts we call ours. Forgive us, O Bread of Life, and by your forgiveness, teach us to hunger for things that you do; to hunger for justice, to long for equality, to work for the common good until none of your children have to hunger for bread.
Assurance Of Pardon
HYMN: “Savior, Thy Dying Love” #279
Prayer of Illumination
Sovereign God, let your Word rule in our hearts and your Spirit govern our lives until at last we see the fulfillment of your realm of justice and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
