|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)|
God of grace and glory, we look towards your heavens with awe, and are amazed at the beauty of Creation! Who are we to deserve such wonders? We are blessed to be here, in this place, surrounded by hearts that seek your voice, and when we sing, it is out of our love for you and hope in you. We give thanks, Holy One. We come, too, with hearts heavy from work and worry. In the busyness of our lives we look forward to time for ourselves, forgetting that even a moment spent helping someone else through a call or a visit can mean the world to another. Help us to remember the greater wealth of giving of ourselves and bringing a smile to a friend or a stranger. Lead us in your Way, we pray, in the name of the Christ. 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.

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