WE PRAISE THE LORD OUR CREATOR

INTROIT AND BRINGING IN THE LIGHT OF CHRIST

Let this be a time of preparing our hearts for worship

Hymn #475 “Come, Thou Font of Every Blessing”  v. 1

CALL TO WORSHIP

One:    A voice of power and majesty calls out to us:

I am your God; I have called you in righteousness.

All:      We are amazed that God knows us and calls us.

            By God’s breath and spirit, we receive life.

One:    God takes us by the hand and leads us.

In covenant with God, we extend light to the world.

All:      Eyes are opened and prisoners are freed.

            Justice and peace prevail, by God’s strength.

One:    Worship with joy and give glory to God’s name.

Listen for the new thing God declares.

All:      We remember that we have been baptized.

            May we live as those with whom God is pleased.

*HYMN   Page#10                “Sing Glory to the Name of God”

WE CONFESS OUR NEED

*CALL TO CONFESSION

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION

God of glory, we confess that our lives have not glorified you. God of justice, we admit our complicity with systems of injustice. God of light, we are aware of the shadows we create that keep others from seeing you. All-inclusive God, we repent of our narrow vision and our tendency to exclude. Purge us of the idols that keep us from full commitment to the way of Jesus, in whose name we pray. Amen.
