CALL TO WORSHIP
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
and with all your soul, and with all your mind.
And you shall love your neighbor as yourself.
Drawn by love, we come, to offer our whole selves in Christ’s service.
Let us worship the Lord!

PRAYER OF CONFESSION (UNISON)
O God, we know this, your Greatest Commandment: love the Lord with heart, soul, and mind; love your neighbor as yourself. These words dwell in our hearts and rest on our lips. And, yet, we are so slow to act upon them. When we encounter neighbors in need we are quick to pass judgment, even though our love demands empathy. We see your children suffering, but are too busy, too weary to respond, even though love demands compassion. We see unjust systems that strip others of dignity but believe we are powerless to effect change, even though love demands action. And whenever we do not treat our neighbors as we ourselves would hope to be treated, we do not love you fully.
Forgive us, Lord. Transform our hearts, restore our souls, and renew our minds, so that we might be faithful to your commandments, in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
DECLARATION OF PARDON
PASSING THE PEACE OF CHRIST
Lord prepare me, to be a sanctuary.
Pure and holy, tried, and true.
With thanksgiving, we’ll be a living sanctuary for You.
