What has Jesus done in your life?
Is Jesus doing something now?
Do you feel you have nothing worth sharing that people would want to hear?
What disqualifies your testimony?
PRELUDE Aus meines Herzens Grunde — J G Walther (chorale harm JSB)
CHORAL INTROIT Lift Up Your Heads — John Yarrington
CALL TO WORSHIP (responsively)
One: In the midst of darkness, there is light.
All: In the midst of spiritual blindness, we will be given sight.
One: Our Savior, Jesus Christ, brings healing love to us.
All: Let the light of Jesus’ love breakthrough our blindness and fill our world with glory.
*HYMN OF PRAISE No. 181 Ye Servants Of God
OUR COMMON PRAYER (unison)
Discerner of hearts, you look beneath our outward appearance and see your image in each of us. Banish from us the blindness that prevents us from recognizing truth, so that we may see the world through your eyes and with the compassion of Jesus Christ who redeems us. Amen.
