|Prelude||Softly And Tenderly||Alex Danson|
|Call to Worship (Responsive)||Eric Ward|
One: Jesus says, PžÄ
|Opening Hymn||Live Into Hope||Hymn #772|
|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (Responsive)||Eric Ward|
One: As the apostle Paul reminds us,
love is what fulfills the law.
We do not always love God with whole hearts
or love our neighbors as ourselves.
But God loves us faithfully.
With the confidence of beloved children,
let us confess our sins before God and neighbor.
All: Forgiving God,
You teach us to seek reconciliation
with those who have wronged us;
for, above all else,
we are to love one another.
But we let resentment smolder
until anger flares,
destroying any chance of peace.
We blame others and refuse to repent.
Grant us grace, we pray.
Make space in our wounded hearts
for the possibility of forgiveness,
and teach us to turn toward others in love
as you have turned toward us.
|(A moment for silent reflection)|
|Assurance of Forgiveness (Responsive)||Eric Ward|
One: Salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed;
the night is far gone, the day is near.
Friends, the light of Christ shines within and among us,
dispelling the shadows of sin and death,
and illuminating our path,
that we might walk in newness of life.
In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven!
All: In the name of Jesus Christ we are forgiven. Thanks be to God.

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 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.
