And the Word became flesh and lived among us,

and we have seen his glory… 

from his fullness we have received, grace upon grace.

         John 1: 14a, 16

**Hymn of Approach  #321  Maker in Whom We Live vs1 (seated)

Maker, in whom we live, in whom we are and move, 
the glory, power, and praise receive for thy creating love. 
Let all the angel throng give thanks to God on high, 
while earth repeats the joyful song and echoes to the sky.

Call to Worship

One We, who value moderation, 

All come here to experience extravagance! 

One We, who fear scarcity,

All come here to revel in abundance!

One We, who prefer the ordinary,

All come here to wonder at the miraculous!

**Hymn #530 All Beautiful the March of Days 

Prayer of Confession 

Light has come into the world, 

but still we hide in the shadows.

Love has come into the world

but still we continue to hate.

Hope has come into the world,

but still we contend with despair.

Grace has come into the world

but still we fail to forgive.

Peace has come into the world,

but still we engage in conflict.

Forgive us, O God, 

for clinging to the old and resisting the new.

Assurance of God’s Love Fear not, says the Lord, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. You are precious in my sight and honoured and I love you.

What can I do? What can I bring?

What can I say?  What can I sing?

I'll sing with joy. I'll say a prayer.

I'll bring my love. I'll do my share. 

Offertory Prayer (together) From your boundless love, O God, you created a world of abundance. We give back now with gratitude for all we have received. We acknowledge the unmet needs of many in our world and pray that our offerings will bring assistance and hope in Jesus’ name. Amen
