Prelude (Video)…..….…………………………………………………………………………Lord, I Need You

Listen and center yourself for worship. If you are so moved, sing or hum along.

 

Call to Worship                                                                                Psalm 23:3, 5-6 CEB

[My Shepherd] keeps me alive. He guides me in proper paths for the sake of his good name.

You set a table for me right in front of my enemies.

You bathe my head in oil; my cup is so full it spills over!

Yes, goodness and faithful love will pursue me all the days of my life,

And I will live in the Lord’s house as long as I live.

 

Opening Prayer         The Serenity Prayer   UMH #459

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other. Amen.

 

*Welcoming the Light of Christ

Light your candle to symbolize the light of Christ in the world, in your life, and in your space.

The Lord’s Prayer ~ Bishop Sally Dyck and the NIC Cabinet (Video) (Audio)

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.  Amen.

 

*Following the Light of Christ

You can choose to either keep your candle burning throughout the day, or extinguish it as you sing/listen.
