ONE: The glory of God shines like a consuming fire.

|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (Unison)||Elizabeth Morgan|
God of all glory, beauty, and grace, you are in the midst of us, but we have tried to hide from you- to hide from your call and to hide our sins- yet you have never hidden your love for us. You have revealed yourself to us in the face of Jesus Christ. Forgive us, and transform us so that our lives may shine with your glory, beauty and grace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
|(A moment for silent reflection)|
|Assurance of Forgiveness (Unison)||Elizabeth Morgan|
Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ. Christ died for us. Christ rose for us. And Christ reigns in power for us. Hear and believe the good news of the gospel: in Jesus Christ we are forgiven.

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

Lord, open our hearts and minds by the power of your Holy Spirit, that as the Scriptures are read and your Word is proclaimed, we may hear with joy what you say to us today. Amen
