Introit “Wind Who Makes All Winds That Blow”
Prayer of the Day (unison)
Come among us, Jesus, You whom the angels worship
and children welcome. Come, Jesus, and meet us here.
Come among us, Jesus You who hurled the stars into space
and shaped the spider’s weaving. Come, Jesus, and meet us here.
Come among us, Jesus, You who walked the long road to Bethlehem
and lit a flame that dances forever. Come, Jesus, and meet us here. Amen.
Hymn #127 “Come, O Spirit” Boundless Mercy
Call to Confession
Prayer of Confession (unison)
Merciful, mighty God, you poured your Spirit upon gathered disciples
creating bold tongues, open ears, and a new community of faith.
We confess that we hold back the force of your Spirit among us.
We do not hear the fullness of your grace, speak the totality of your love,
or live as a people made one in Christ.
Have mercy on us, O God.
Transform our timidity by the power of your Spirit,
Fill us with determination to be your faithful people,
doing your will for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Declaration of Pardon
Leader: Hear and believe the good news of the gospel.
People: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven.
Gloria Patri Hymn #579
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
