Call to Worship (unison)

Living God, artist of the changing skies, builder of the steadfast earth, Lively Christ, born to walk life’s journey with us, Spirit of life, always moving in us and among us, Your presence surrounds us here and everywhere we go. Your purpose holds the world in its place; Your imagination engages us each step of the way. In our time of worship, show us how we can serve you, and open our imaginations to the future you create, for we seek your guidance and your grace now and always. Amen.

Prayer of Confession (unison)

God of time and eternity, we confess that we have long memories, especially for things that hurt us, for moments we resent or regret. Week by week we seek your forgiveness for our mistakes, but we confess we do not forgive others so faithfully. Sometimes we seek opportunities to even the score. Confront us with your mercy, O God, and open our hearts to its cleansing power. Amen.

Welcome

Gospel Jam: Amen | VU #341 Fairest Lord Jesus | VU #506 Take My Life and Let It Be

Call to Worship (unison)

Eternal God, first and last, our beginning and our end, beside you there is nothing or no one greater. You gave breath to all living things. By your Spirit, you are among us still, breathing new life, turning anger into reconciliation, division into unity, grief into consolation. Through your grace, you open up new directions and new possibilities for the world you love. So, we offer you our lives and our labours in worship and in service, joining in creation’s song of praise and adoration: Holy, holy, holy are you, O God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and always. Amen.

Life & Work of the Community Of Faith

Prayer of Confession (unison)

God of mercy, we know you judge the world with an eye for the poor and outcast. We confess we fail to live with the same eye for those on the margins. We have been silent when we should have spoken up, and uncaring in the face of injustice. We have not shown the same generosity to others that you have shown us. Forgive us for putting ourselves first, and help us to serve you with the kindness we meet in Jesus Christ.

We Gather In Praise

Prelude

Gathering (unison)

Gracious and generous God, we gather each week in wonder, marvelling at your mysterious presence in the awesome beauty of the world, and in surprising encounters in our lives. We gather with grateful hearts, amazed by the abundance in your creation, abundance we can share at our tables and in our communities, abundance in food, in friendship and in faithfulness. We gather with hopeful hearts, seeking another taste of your love for us, hoping that others will share in the wonders of that love. Your love for us all is mysterious and miraculous, O God, with the power to transform times that overwhelm us and lives that hunger for hope. We gather, trusting that you will move once again in our worship, and open before us the new possibilities you create for all your people in Christ, the Bread of Life, bread for our journeys. Amen.
