Call to Worship Mike and Kathy Lindsay
The heavens are telling the glory of God;
The earth proclaims God’s handiwork.
Let the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts
Be acceptable in the sight of God.
O God, whose Son cleansed the Temple of those who would stain it: In your mercy behold your Church, that we may he neither stained by our own sins nor held in bondage by the sins of others, that being freed and cleansed from both, we might pay our service to you; Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God for ever and ever. Amen. [Leonine Sacramentary; alt, TJC]

Our Father in heaven, holy be your name,

Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, the glory are yours now and for ever.
