Greeting and Announcements

*Responsive Intent
It is holy to gather.
It is holy to sing.
It is holy to be generous, to throw our coats on the road.
It is holy to celebrate justice when we see it.
It is holy to shout, “Hosanna!”
It is holy to remember.
It is holy to gather.
It is holy to sing.
Here and now, let us do all of these things.

Anthem                      Hosanna, Hosanna                        by Theresa Woody

Call to Confession

Prayer of Confession
God of street parades and hosannas, we know that you are counting on us to speak out against oppression, to speak up for love and to speak hope to fear, but so often we are silent.
We worry that we’ll say the wrong thing, so we don’t say anything at all.
We worry that we’ll offend, so we keep our convictions to ourselves.
We worry that we’ll speak up and won’t be heard, so we stay silent.
And meanwhile, the parade marches on.
Unravel our fears. Spark conviction in us.
Give us the courage to yell, “Hosanna!”
Gratefully we pray, amen.

Words of Forgiveness

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.
