Prelude (Video)…..….…………………..Cares Chorus  FWS #2215 

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

Call to Worship                                       WSL 65 (adapt.)

Jesus said, “Come unto me all you who are weary  and I will give you rest.”

We long for our souls to rest in the peace which Jesus gives.

Jesus also said, “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me.” We seek to learn from the God of all knowledge.

Jesus said,” My woke is easy, and my burden is light.”

As we worship, we cast our burden on the Savior who bears our burdens and lightens our load.           

Opening Prayer          BOW 476 (adapt.)

O holy and merciful God, we confess that we have not always taken upon ourselves the yoke of obedience, nor been willing to seek and to do your perfect will. We have not loved you with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength, neither have we loved our neighbors as ourselves. You have called to us in the needs of others, and we have passed unheeding on our way. In the pride of our hearts, and our unwillingness to repent, we have turned away from the cross of Christ, and grieved your Holy Spirit. Thank your for your redeeming grace that restores us to your glory. 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.
