GREETING

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.
