|* Call to Worship|
One: The heavens proclaim the glory of God;
Many: the skies, proclaim the work of his hands.
One: Day after day they pour forth speech;
Many: Night after night they display knowledge.
One: There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.
ALL: Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the end
of the world!
|* Opening Hymn||To God Be the Glory||Hymn #634 (all)|
|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)|
Let us be clear Lord, in our mission. Let us declare our faithfulness to your Call. We are part of a whole, a world crafted by your love; we are made in your image, and try to understand the wonder of it. We move through life with grateful hearts, understanding the Sacrifice made for us. How wonderful is creation yet how personal your love! We pray, O God, that you will forgive our sins that are born of ignorance, intolerance, and greed. And we ask, O God, that you will restore our direction and redeem our purpose to your Will, in this moment, even as we are praying, always 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.

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