PRELUDE

CALL TO WORSHIP                                       – John van de Laar
In every fragment of time, O God,
You work Your acts of grace.
In every grain of earth, O Christ,
You bring Your grace to life.
In every breath of every living thing, O Spirit,
You whisper Your grace to our souls.
Open our eyes, open our ears, and open our hearts…
Open the senses of all people to Your ever-present grace;
That those who are disillusioned may hope again.
That those who are frightened may trust again.
That those who despair may rejoice again.
That those who grieve and are lost may love again.
And that all creation may be filled again with wonder
at Your gracious glory.

PRAYER OF CONFESSION                        – John van de Laar
So many voices,
so many signs,
so many choices and opinions
all promising wisdom
and the life it brings.
It’s tempting to listen,
tempting to try these well-marketed principles
especially now, when so much is at stake.
But, then I remember,
wisdom is not an idea,
not a method or technique,
not a formula to buy or sell.
It’s much simpler, and much more difficult than that,
for it requires the unpredictable,
the time-consuming,
the vulnerable work
of relationship with you, God.
So, here I am, to lose myself in you again,
and to let your wisdom find me.

HYMN #470                   There is a Longing in Our Hearts
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth
as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory forever.
Amen.
