Call to Worship                                                                                      BOW 449

Trust in the Lord and do good. May the Lord give strength to the people!

O taste and see that the Lord is good! God is our refuge and strength.

Opening Prayer adapted from BOW 478

Holy and awesome God, we are in your presence acknowledging our shortcomings. Though there is greatness in us, and a deep longing for goodness, we have often denied our better selves and refused to hear your voice calling us to rise to the full height of our humanity. There is weakness in us, as well as strength. At times we choose to walk in darkness, our vision obscured. We do not always care to look within, and we are not always willing to look beyond at those who need our help. O God, we too are weak and require aid. Be with us as a strong and wise friend, and teach us to walk by the light of your truth. For your mercy, grace, and pardon we thank and praise you. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. 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.
