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. (x2)
Melt me, mold me, fill me, use me.
Spirit of the Living God, fall afresh on me.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial, and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and forever. Amen.
