WE GATHER AS GOD’S BELOVED 

GREETINGS AND WELCOME

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

CENTERING MOMENT AND COLLECT 

INTROIT: “Spirit of Life, come unto me. Sing in my heart all the stirrings of compassion. Blow in the wind, rise in the sea; move in the hand giving life the shape of justice. Roots hold me close, wings set me free; Spirit of Life, come to me, come to me.”    (MV# 381, used with permission)                     

Opening Prayer (Unison) We gather together in faith.  In the hope of things not yet seen, but promised to us through God. We come yearning and longing for that which is invisible, yet fills our hearts with understanding through the Holy Spirit. Come let us worship our wonderful God and feed upon The Word that we might follow in kin-dom ways.

All sing: “To Abraham and Sarah”                               VU# 634  

A PRAYER FOR RENEWAL (Unison) Holy, Loving God, lead us away from those things in the past, we cling to with stubborn hearts. We struggle to keep ways that don’t work, habits that don’t benefit us or others, and thinking that excludes and separates us from people. Forgive us God. Give us the courage and the strength to step into the unknown, into new ways and trust that you will lead us with your love and guidance.  (Time of Contemplative Silence) 

WORDS OF ASSURANCE: God is with us every step of our journey. Whether we choose to listen and obey or not, God loves us and holds us and tenderly calls us into relationship. We are a forgiven people. Thanks be to God!
