CALL TO WORSHIP: One: Out of a world of cut-throat competition, of winners-and-losers, and too many left behind we come together. All: The world’s ways are not our ways. The world’s ways are not Christ’s ways. One: Out of a world of hatred, violence, individualism, and life-taking power we gather as unity, as God’s people. All: God’s ways are inclusive, expansive, and life-giving for all peoples. One: Come and worship the One whose love knows no limits! Swim and splash in the cleansing waters of divine community! Resurrect your spirits and souls in worship of the Eternal One! All: We praise and worship the Everlasting One! HYMN: I Sing the Mighty Power of God SCRIPTURE READING: Jeremiah 18: 1-5 INVITATION TO CONFESSION: Just As I Am Just as I am without one plea, but that Thy Blood was shed for me And that Thou biddest me come to Thee, O Lamb of God, I come, I come. Just as I am though tossed about with many a conflict many a doubt Fightings and fears within without O Lamb of God, I come, I come. MOMENT FOR CONFESSION: We thank you, Lord, for making us in your divine image. We are also deeply grateful that you are like a potter, shaping and molding us like clay on a spinning wheel. Hear our confession of sin and wrongdoing. <Silence for Reflection> Creative God, transform us with your grace. Like the psalmist who sought cleansing and pardon, we ask you to “create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.” Through the merits of Christ alone, Amen. ASSURANCE OF PARDON All: In Christ we are loved, we are safe and we are redeemed. In Christ we are rescued, we are together, hope-filled and made new. In Christ we are forgiven, praise be to God! GLORIA: Gloria Patri – Glory Be to The Father 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.
