WELCOME

Lighting of the Christ Candle

One:   Christ is our Light

All:      Thanks be to God

 

*CALL TO WORSHIP

All:      God welcomes our generous offerings of gratitude and praise.

 

 

PRAYER OF APPROACH

 

*Hymn VU # 149 When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

 

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

One:     Holy One, you who created with the passion and care of all great artists, you have enflamed our lives with the image of your very being.  We honestly say this day that too readily and too often we relinquish our faith or mislay our belief.  For the times we needlessly punish ourselves and others, not heeding inviting words of grace.

All:      Open us. Heal us. Restore us.

One:    For the times we doubt the call to be all we are through expansive, accepting love of Christ.

All:      Open us. Heal us. Restore us.

One:    And for the times we hide the treasures we have been given, fearing the crowd’s silence rather than loving the joy of expression.

All:      Open us. Heal us. Restore us.

 

ASSURANCE OF PARDON

One:    Like salt, like yeast, your influence is silent, yet strong within us, O God.

All:      As we feel our confidence restored, as we sense our hope renewed, as we realize the power for good that is ours in Christian fellowship, an active peace is ours.

One:    Pardon and peace is God’s will for you.

All:      Thanks be to God. Amen.

 

ANTHEM     There’s a Church within us O Lord
