|* Call to Worship|
One: This is your day, O God, and we come with joy and love!
Many: We will sing of your love and justice;
One: To you, O Lord, we will sing praise.
ALL: Be with us in this, your holy place!
|* Opening Hymn||O Day of Rest and Gladness||Hymn #393 (all)|
|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)|
On this day of glory and light, we rejoice in your power and love, O Lord. On a mountain you revealed yourself, and established your place above all Creation. Because of you, we need not fear, and because of you we dare to hope - we are called to hope, so sure is your promise. With Christ as the victor, we cannot lose. And still, we worry. We seek dark places. We experience terror and let it overwhelm the light. Forgive us, Holy One, and mend our broken clay. Build us up as vessels of your love, fearless and joyful in the face of any challenge, confident always of your presence in all of life. We ask 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.
