Call to Worship  (I John 3:2)

Leader:  The Lord be with you,

People:  And with you also.

Leader:  Beloved, we are God's children now;

People:  What we will be has not yet been revealed.

Leader:  What we do know is this:

People:  When he is revealed, we will be like him,

Leader:  For we will see him as he is.


Opening Prayer


Prayer of Confession (in unison)

God of compassion,

in Jesus Christ, you reveal the light of your glory, but we turn away, distracted by our own plans. 

We confess that we speak when we should listen and act when we should wait.  Forgive our aimless enthusiasms. 

Grant us wisdom to live in your light

Grant us wisdom to follow in the way of your beloved Son,  Jesus Christ,  our Lord and Savior.  Amen.




Declaration of Forgiveness

Leader:  Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us. (Rom 8:34)

People: So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! (II Cor. 5:17)
