  “Forgiveness” by Jan Richardson


Children’s Worship Sheet is at bottom of this order.

A caution regarding Prayers of the People online:

Folks gathered in-person often recount a lot of detail in their prayers concerning other members or family (“Elderly Name, living alone, experiencing isolation…”).  In  a private, in-person gathering, this information may be safe, but online, it can expose vulnerable people to harm, since we can’t control who will join the gathering or access it later online. Please contact the Pastor directly by text or phone with prayer requests. Pastor Nathan will be prudent in offering prayers i.e.  “For First name only, in need of healing”; “For First name only, comfort in grief”  etc.  Please contact the pastor directly with news of those needing extra pastoral care.

Responsive Intent
One: We have moved through the open portals in hope of finding a place of belonging.
All: Love is possible.
One: We cross the virtual boundaries that divide us  by ages and stages, ethnicities and genders, pandemics and politics, hurts and disagreements.
All: Love is possible.
One: We open our hearts and ready our hands to reach out to one another and discover One who is within and beyond all of us.
All: Love is possible.
One: Let us worship together in love.

Morning Prayer Concerns and Celebrations
Prayers of the People and Lord’s Prayer
Our Mother-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.
