GREETINGS AND WELCOME

CENTERING MOMENT AND COLLECT                                

INTROIT“Lord, prepare me to be a sanctuary, pure and holy, tried and true; with thanksgiving, I’ll be a living sanctuary for you.”      (MV #18, used with permission). 

OPENING PRAYER: (Unison)

Sisters and brothers – Arise!  (Stand up)

Lift up your hearts.                   (Raise your hands).

Lift up your eyes.                     (Look up).

Lift up your voices:

The living God, the living, moving Spirit of God has called us together – in witness in celebration in struggle.(Reach out toward each other.) Our God reaches out toward us! Let us worship God!

HYMN: “Come, Children Join to Sing”                         VU# 345 

PRAYER OF RENEWAL: (Unison)

You have graced us with this hour of peace, O God.

We come knowing that you accept us as we are.

You have graced us with this hour of peace, O God.

While we experience peace, we know that there are others   who experience injustice, hunger, poverty and war and we pray that they too may know peace.

You have graced us with this hour of peace, O God.

Strengthen us in this time of worship that we may build relationships of gentleness and peace and that we may work for peace for all in our world. Amen. (Time of Contemplative Silence)
