God is Revealed as We Gather
*Responsive Call to Worship
Our lives are in the care of God.
God has given us abundance and hope.
This day we have come to praise and thank God for all that God has done for us.
We gather to celebrate God’s love and to offer our lives in service.
Come, let us open our hearts to the Lord!
Let us rejoice in God’s goodness and love.
*Opening Hymn “This is the Day” (#84)
Unison Prayer of Confession
God of life, we confess that we have not done enough to break the cycle of poverty. We confess that we have not demanded more from ourselves, our communities of faith, or our governments. Too often we have put our comfort over the needs of those who are hungry, homeless, hopeless. Give us courage to be the people you have called us to be. Open our hands and hearts to you and others.
