Gathering Around the Word
Prelude Music Director Robert Senay
CHORAL INTROIT “Gather Us In”
CALL TO WORSHIP
Leader: Just a taste of something wonderful,
People: Only a glimpse of something magnificent,
Leader: Just a glimmer of something holy in something so ordinary.
People: Yet, enough to know we are in the presence of God,
Leader: Enough to cause us to stop and stare in awe,
People: Enough to stir our hearts in wonder,
Leader: Enough to set our feet to dancing
People: And to prompt our voices to protest and praise.
INVOCATION Rev. Mason
HYMN “CHRIST, WHOSE GLORY” 293
PRAYER OF CONFESSION (UNISON)
Merciful friend and Savior, you have called us to live as your disciples and have equipped us with the very power of God to be your heart, hands and feet to the world. We confess that instead of serving our neighbors with the might and boldness of your Spirit, we are timid and afraid. We fail to be peacemakers. We harbor resentments rather than model radical forgiveness. We are at times judgmental rather than compassionate. Forgive us, we pray. Grant to us a renewed vision of who we are in you. Revitalize our faith and transform our lives. Amen.
