Call to Worship
God calls from the heavens above
and to the earth that all may be judged.
The heavens declare God's righteousness,
for God alone is judge!
Almighty God, who has shown continuing faithfulness toward your children: Shine the light of your countenance upon us that the going-forth of your word may give light and understanding to nourish the hearts of all; Through Jesus Christ our one Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit through ages of ages. Amen. [Mozarabic Sacramentary; alt, TJC]

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
Your kingdom come, your will be done,
On earth as it is 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 for ever.
