* Opening Hymn For the Beauty of the Earth  Hymn #14 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
We thank you, loving God, for what we know and what we have yet to know. For the amazing beauty of this world, for the infinite stars, for the renewal of spring, for the flower that buds, then blooms. We pray that in our lives our hearts will open like the flower, and we will understand and demonstrate your love. When we fail to love, we pray that you will forgive us our sin, and that the balm of your Grace will lead us to the friend, the stranger, to our very selves, so that your desire for all your people will be realized; that we are One in you, O God. We ask in Jesus’ name, Amen.

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Pardon Hear the good news! In Christ, we are forgiven! In Christ, we have new life!
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.

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

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.

With God as our Father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my sister
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow.

To take each moment
And live each moment
In peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth,
And let it begin with me.

* Benediction
