Prelude (Video)…..……………..…Spirit of the Living God  UMH #393

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

Call to Worship

The Lord is the sower of the seeds of love and redemption.

But we have not always been ready to receive these seeds.
Today we hear again the scriptures that remind us of the awesome generosity of God.

Help us be good soil, O God, prepared to receive your love and to grow in that love. Amen.

Opening Prayer

Creator of the visible and the invisible, divine Deliverer, Life-sustaining Spirit, all that is depends upon you and rejoices in your praise. You blot out our sins and free us to live as your children in love and helpfulness. Your Spirit both inspires our prayers and promotes our growth in Christ. All whom you deliver from sin and death praise you in your household. We especially rejoice in the reassuring voice of the Spirit, calling us into one loving family with you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 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.
