Call to Worship
One There is a love that keeps creating
All even though we seem bent on destruction.
One There is a love that keeps seeking
All even though we seem determined to hide.
One There is a love that keeps including
All even though we seem inclined to reject.
One There is a love that keeps gathering
All it is the Love that never lets us go.
**Hymn #321 Maker in Whom We Live
Opening Prayer (together) The Lord's Prayer, paraphrased
Breath of Life,
in whom we live and move and have our being,
your presence fills all creation.
May justice and mercy reign
in our lives and in our world.
Today may our bellies be full,
our hearts warm
and our fellowship open.
May we reconcile with the people whom we have hurt,
just as we reconcile with the people who have hurt us.
Lead us not into a time of trial,
but deliver us from evil.
For wherever grace and community abide,
there you are with us;
we are not alone,

I'll bring my love. I'll do my share.
Offertory (together) Gracious God, we pray that you will receive, bless and use these gifts we offer for your work in this church and in the world. May your kingdom be found among us. Amen.
