* Call to Worship Leader: Sometimes, O God, we feel like Jacob, wrestling with angels. 
 People: Strengthen us. Leader: Sometimes we feel battered and broken. 
 People: Touch us. Leader: Sometimes we grow so weary in the struggle. 
 People: Refresh us. 
 All: Together, let us seek the face of the Divine.

* Opening Hymn God Is Here!  Hymn #409 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
Lord, give us courage to confront ourselves honestly, to reject the pretense and strip to the real; to act justly with those close to us, and advocate justice for those distant from us to work to heal what is injured in our lives, and to celebrate the wondrous rest. O God, lead us in the narrow way of trust, and accompany us into the awe or ache so deep that we are forced to sort out what matters. Transform us by your grace that we will be confident of your blessing upon our lives and stirred to bless others.

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Pardon
Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, was risen for us, and reigns in power over us. Sisters and brothers hear this good news. Through Christ we are forgiven and reconciled with the Creator of all.

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

For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
