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,

Blessed be.
