WELCOME Rev. Pedro Senhorinha Silva II
*HYMN 11 Bring Many Names
*CALL TO WORSHIP
It is in the those least expected events
that our callings become more clear.
We are called to love one another.
It is in our weaknesses
That God’s strength is made perfect.
And it is in our loneliest moments
That community rises up to meet us
We are not alone. We are All One.
The Spirit of Adoption calls us to this knowledge.
If one part suffers, every part suffers with it;
if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.
CALL TO CONFESSION
PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Present God, in confessing, we admit
that there is so much we have put off until later.
Telling someone that we love them or
that we forgive them.
Opening our eyes to see our neighbors as you see them.
Seeing ourselves in the light of your love.
Praying for those who would not pray for us.
Seeing the planet as more than just a mine for our consumption.
And now suddenly,
in the heightened awareness of this season we wonder,
will we remember what this moment is teaching us?

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE
THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

God who is Life, In this hour, we acknowledge that you are our Source. All that we have, all that we are, and all that we will be has its Genesis in you. Remind us of this as we dedicate this moment to you and to widening the welcome of your community. In the Christ’s Name we pray. Amen.
