WELCOME

 

Lighting of the Christ Candle

PRAYER OF APPROACH

 

*Hymn VU # #  579 The Church Is Wherever God’s People

 

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

All:      O God, in a world where there is always suffering, it can be hard to believe in some grand vision of shalom.  We catch glimpses of community, fairness, justice, and kindness.  But these are like lightning flashes in a night-time storm that quickly fade into the shadows of reality.  When we become discouraged, we often give up trying to live into the dream of a new way.  In those times, when friendship is possible, we withdraw.  When compassion is possible, we withhold.  When effort is needed, we shrink back.  Renew your vision within us, O God.

 

 

ASSURANCE OF PARDON

One:    God Says: I am renewing heaven and earth and I shall be with you.  Even now, I forgive.  Even now, I re-create.  Even now, I call you into something new.  I am renewing heaven and earth and I am beginning with you, today.

All:      Thanks be to God! Amen
