* Call to Worship
One: This is the day the Lord has made;
Many: Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
One: Open wide the doors that all may enter;
ALL: God’s house is a place of joy and welcome!

* Opening Hymn Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee  Hymn #611 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
Thank you, God. Thank you for the mountains, the water beneath the sand, the deep blue of the sky and the whisper of the palms in the wind. Thank you, for this beautiful place we call home. The beauty of the desert shows us how your creation adapts, transforms, and is renewed in ways that seem impossible, but find possibility in you. Thank you, God. Help us to treasure the earth, and everyone who walks upon it. Forgive our prejudice and blindness, heal our sin of silence and complacency. Lead us, O Lord, to shout! your Truth and transform our passive hearts to hearts of love, compassion, and action in your name. In Jesus’ 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.
