*Responsive Call to Worship
Praise to God our Creator, source of our being
and wellspring of life.
Praise to God our liberator, who sets us free
and gives us hope.
Praise to God the Word, love made flesh to dwell among us.
Praise to Jesus the Christ, who feeds the hungry
and shows us the Way.
Praise to God the Spirit, fiery light and rushing wind.
Praise to the Holy Spirit, who inspires, challenges, comforts, and sustains us.
Come let us worship God, the Earth-maker, the Pain-bearer,
and the Life-giver—
Let us worship God!
*Opening Hymn “This is My Father’s World” (#16 P&W Songbook)
Unison Prayer of Confession
Holy God, your cry for wisdom and understanding
echoes in our homes, our workplaces, our schools,
our church committee meetings, our legislatures and
our courts. We confess we don’t always want to hear
that cry, deciding instead to rely on familiar habits,
comfortable assumptions, and quick conclusions.
We ask you to show us another way, O God.
