WELCOME

 

Lighting of the Christ Candle

One:    Christ is our Light

All:      Thanks be to God

 

 

*CALL TO WORSHIP

One: We come into this community ready for Spirit’s presence among us.

All:      Open our hearts and minds to receive you in a new way.

One:    We come into this sacred space ready to worship.

All:      Open our hearts and minds to receive you in a new way.

One:    We come into a place of challenge and grace ready for your word.

All:      Open our hearts and minds to receive you in a new way.

PRAYER OF APPROACH

 

*Hymn VU # 646 We Are Marching

 

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Left:    Hear the words of Jesus from the Sermon on the Plain as recorded in the gospel of Luke: Do not judge others, and God will not judge you; do not condemn others, and God will not condemn you; forgive others and God will forgive you.

Middle: Why look at the speck in your neighbour’s eye but pay no

attention to the log in your own.  First take out the log in

your own eye.

Right:  A healthy tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a poor tree bear good fruit.  Every tree is known by the fruit it bears.

All:      We welcome you more fully into our lives.  May our living be shaped by your words.

 

ASSURANCE OF PARDON

One:    Receive these words of assurance, spoken by Jesus and retold in the gospel of Luke.  I will show you what someone is like who comes to me, hears my words, and acts on them. That one is like a man building a house, who dug deeply and laid the foundation on rock, when a flood arose, the river burst against the house but could not shake it, because it had been well built.  We are built on the firm foundation of God’s loving community.  Let us weather the storms with grace, assured of God’s presence always with us, sustaining us, and enabling us to live in the way of Jesus.

All:      Thanks be to God! Amen
