Trinity Sunday

Called by God, We Gather

Chimes  The chimes mark the beginning of worship



Call to Worship  Scott Danielson

   No one has ever seen God;

          If we live one another, God lives in us,

          and God's love is perfected in us.


Opening Hymn   "Holy, Holy, Holy" #64

Opening Prayer Scott Danielson

                     Triune God, your Spirit danced over the waters, your Word was spoken, and the glory of your creation sprang forth: sun and moon, earth and sky, creatures beyond count. We thank you and praise you for putting your image within us and for creating us but a little lower than the angels. Abide in us, as you abide in the fullness of your holy mystery. Teach us to be caretakers and stewards of your good earth, that we may walk gently upon the meadows, and leave puddles of light wherever we tread. In the name of Christ, we pray. Amen.

Passing the Peace of Christ   Response   "Spirit of the Living God"   #393

   Spirit of the Living God, fall afresh on me.
