* Call to Worship One: Let our voices be heard in the darkness Many: Let Gods Word and love fall from our lips One: For we gather in joy as his people of light Many: Let all who hear rejoice! One: Let all who hear rejoice, ALL: Let all creation praise his holy name!

* Opening Hymn Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise  Hymn #12 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
We give thanks, God of Creation, for this world in which we live; for the forests, the deserts, the mountains, the rivers and seas. We give thanks for all that lives upon it; for the life that both sustains us and amazes us with grace and beauty. We are in awe at the patterns of birds’ flight against a blue sky, and the small imprints in the sand left by the smallest of your creatures. We are so grateful for such beauty in nature, yet too often do not see the same beauty in one another. Why do we fear those unlike us? How can we not see the beauty of a voice that sounds different, skin of another color, a life experience different than our own? Forgive us, our God, for you are the God of all, creator of all. Help us to see the truth in ourselves and surrender to your great love, one with the beauty of this, your world. In Christ we are healed and made whole, and in his name, we pray. 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.

For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
