* Call to Worship One: The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble; Many: He sits enthroned in the heavens, let the earth shake. One: Great is the Lord, he is exalted over all; ALL: Let us praise his great and awesome name, he is holy!

* Opening Hymn Open My Eyes, That I May See  Hymn #451 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
Loving God, how can our human hearts perceive the glory of your Creation and the intimacy of your Grace? Were we to truly understand, our hearts would be overcome with a joy so great no trial of life would stand a chance against it. We feel your presence, and the mystery that is our faith is confirmed in every detail of earth, water and air. In friendships and community; in the laughter of the young and the wisdom of the old. You are with us, always. It is with confidence that we pray for forgiveness for our wrong doings, because when we ask in your name we can be sure of your response, your presence, and your strength. We ask that you lift the burden of our sins, that our goodness and desire to be transformed will become safe harbor for all who are in need of love and hope, and that through each of us, a life might be changed and your desire for your world, realized. We pray and we ask in Jesus’ name, Amen.

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Pardon
Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, was risen for us, and reigns in power over us, Sisters and brothers hear this good news. Through Christ we are forgiven and reconciled with the Creator of all.
