Call to Worship                                                                         BOW 402

Risen with Christ, let us seek the realities of the Spirit.

Our life is hidden with Christ in God.

He who descended is also ascended far above the heavens, that he might fill all things.

When Christ, our Life, appears, we shall appear with him in glory! Alleluia!

Opening Prayer BOW 403

Almighty God, your blessed Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, ascended far above the heavens, that he might fill all things. Mercifully give us faith to perceive that, according to his promise, he abides with his Church on earth, even to the end of the world; through the same your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. 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.
