THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE CHURCH   Ron Stephany, Liturgist

ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader: When our hearts are so heavy, it seems we cannot carry them through the day,
People:   God will give us compassion through our friends, so we will not bear the load alone.
Leader:     When our words are so inadequate it seems we cannot speak them,
People:     God will give us hope so we can break forth in songs of joy.
Leader:     When we have so lost our way we stumble in the shadows of life,
People:     God will give us light, so we can find the living waters.

*HYMN No. 469     Morning Has Broken

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Leader:     Called to be servants and stewards of mysteries, we worry more about how others will judge what we drive and wear. Let us go to God’s store, where we will find grace and mercy, before wasting our  blessings on things that pass away.

People:   You tell us not to worry, Lord God, but we cannot seem to help ourselves. With refrigerators full of food, we still make grocery lists; with closets so full we cannot shut the doors, we run out and buy new outfits; with a simple invitation to ‘follow me,’ we form committees to help us decide. We lift our hearts to you, Tender God, so you would fill them with your mercy and hope. May we continue to seek your kingdom in every moment to come, hoping and trusting in the peace and love of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.  Amen.

*KYRIE ELEISON

Lord, have mercy upon us,

Christ, have mercy upon us,

Lord, have mercy upon us.  Amen

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Leader:  Like a nursing child fed by its mother, God’s mercy calms and quiets us, so we can receive all that God wants to give us.
People:    We welcome all that God gives to us, and will share these gifts with everyone we meet. Amen. (Lectionary Liturgies, 9th Sunday in Ordinary Time)

RESPONDING TO THE WORD

*THE APOSTLES’ CREED

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried, he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead, he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting.  Amen
