Prelude Fill My Cup, Lord  Praise Band

* Call to Worship One: This is the day the Lord has made; Many: Let us rejoice and be glad in it! One: We are the children of God who come to praise and sing: ALL: Let us be people of welcome and love!

* Opening Hymn God You Spin the Whirling Planets  on screen (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
God, you are our God, and we stand before you as your children, fully human yet created in your image. We are grateful to be yours, people of the Way. We sing praises for the many gifts we have received, and for the victory of the Cross; yet we struggle with our understanding of you. We try to define you by what we know and who we are, and at times feel alienated or afraid of labels and images. Forgive us our distrust, dear Lord, and let our hearts be filled with your steadfast presence and abiding love. Let this light that is you cast out the darkness of doubt and free us to live in the heart of your creation! We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

(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.

Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

Anthem Who Am I  solo by Susan McGuire
