GATHERING HYMN         UHM #347    “Spirit Song”

Call to Worship                                                          Psalm 67

Leader:   Let God grant us grace and bless us;

       let God make his face shine on us,

People:  so that your way becomes known on earth,
so that your salvation becomes known among all the nations.

Leader:     Let the people thank you, God!

        Let all the people thank you!

People:  Let the people celebrate and shout with joy

        because you judge the nations fairly

        and guide all nations on the earth.

Leader:   Let the people thank you, God!

       Let all the people thank you!

People:  The earth has yielded its harvest.

        God blesses us—our God blesses us!

All:         Let God continue to bless us;

         let the far ends of the earth honor him.


   *Hymn of Praise             “Morning Has Broken”               #145



Most gracious and loving God, we live in a world that doesn’t understand what it means to truly love. Our examples of how to love are shallow and self-serving. Help us in this hour to experience again your life-giving love in our lives. Amen.

Great Thanksgiving


The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,

the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
