ALL:  We come togeth­er to wor­ship God, offer­ing our true selves to God; all that we are, and all that we’re not.
ONE:  By God’s mer­cy, we are not con­formed or con­strained by the pat­terns of this world or what has been in the past. Praise God!
ALL:   By God’s mer­cy, may we be trans­formed by the renew­ing of our minds in this time of wor­ship

OPENING PRAYER (uni­son)
Source of Wis­dom, we praise your abid­ing guid­ance, for you sent Jesus to teach us your way of self-giv­ing love. Thank you, Lord, for the abil­i­ties and respon­si­bil­i­ties you have giv­en us. By your Holy Spir­it, may we learn to live as Jesus did: lov­ing you con­tin­u­al­ly with every action our dai­ly life, that your reign might come as your will is done here on earth as it is in heav­en. Amen.
