*Gathering Music Enter, Rejoice and Come In NCH 73
Greeting and Announcements Rev. Dr. Cathy Cook
Centering Music and lighting of altar candles
One: There is so much to distract us, God: Deadlines and billboards. Glossy magazines and colourful websites. The “beep” of an incoming message. The long “to do” list. The friends to stay in touch with. The birthday parties not to be missed! Appointments. Play dates. Homework. Projects. Repairs. Finance. Worries. Parents. Children. Friends.
All: Help! We come here, Holy One, to re-group and re-gather. Welcome us into a time of re-organizing our priorities and listening to your calling, sifting word. Welcome us in.
*Hymn O Grant Us Light NCH 317
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 kindom 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 kindom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
