Gathering in Community

*Gathering Music                 May We Shine a Light of Love                by Joyce Polly

Greeting and Announcements

Centering Music

*Responsive Intent
ONE Before the mountains soared, before the seas plunged;
TWO: even before Earth spun blue, or the universe spiraled out –
All: You are God and we worship you.
ONE: When our breath fails, and our remains rejoin the elements;
TWO: when millenniums in our measurings appear as one passing day in your sight
All: You are God and we worship you.
ONE: When we flourish and grow; when we balk and resist;
TWO: when our evenings slip into night, and our words into silence –
All: You are God and we worship you.

*Hymn of Contemplation                  A New Commandment                   NCH 389

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 kin-dom 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 kin-dom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
