CHORAL INTROIT                              O Be Joy­ful — John Yarring­ton

CALL TO WORSHIP (based on Psalm 146)

One:    Hap­py are those whose hope is in God, the mak­er of heav­en and earth–

All:   for God’s faith­ful­ness lasts for­ev­er!

One:    God brings jus­tice for the oppressed, and gives food for the hun­gry. God sets    pris­on­ers free, and opens the eyes of the blind.

All:   God’s faith­ful­ness lasts for­ev­er!

One:   God rais­es up those who have been beat­en down. God pro­tects immi­grants,

and helps the orphan and the wid­ow.

All:   God’s faith­ful­ness lasts for­ev­er! 

One:    Peo­ple of God, sing praise to the One who is your help— for God’s

faith­ful­ness lasts for­ev­er!

All:   I will praise the Lord with all my life; I will sing prais­es to my God as long

  as I live.

OUR COMMON PRAYER (uni­son)

Beck­on­ing God, as you moved in the lives of ancient prophets and his­toric saints, move in our lives. We hear your invi­ta­tion to jour­ney to unknown ter­ri­to­ry, to lis­ten for your voice, and to speak your prophet­ic word of jus­tice, mer­cy, and peace. Empow­ered by your Holy Spir­it, grant us the courage we need to trust, jour­ney, lis­ten, speak, and accept your com­mis­sion to live as your faith­ful ser­vant peo­ple, fol­low­ing Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
