Call To Worship

One:           Who are we that we might come before you O God?

Many:       Flesh and blood, profaned by our words and behavior, injured by our daily lives, 

         made unclean by our experiences,

One:           we are unworthy to be in the presence of the Holy and yet you have joined us nonetheless, 

         humbling yourself to be among us as one of us.

Many:      Transform us in this hour, not that we might become more pure and more Holy,

One:          but that we might, in your image, become incarnate –

Many:      that we might become the presence of Christ in the world.

         Amen.

*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.
