Call to Worship

 

I will praise God in every moment,

and through every situation.

Through my words and action,

my life will pay tribute to Him.

Whenever the poor and humble hear of His greatness,

they will celebrate, too!

Come and lift up God’s name with me;

let’s praise His name together!

 

Hymn                           To God Be The Glory                               485

Prayer of Confession

First of all, Everlasting God,

we must confess how we have not lived as your people.

We serve many masters—work, wealth, power, addictions—

yet find no hope in them.

We hear the cries of the poor,

and shut the doors of our hearts to them.

We ridicule those who expose their hopes and dreams to us.

Forgive us, Compassion's Heart,

and heal us of our brokenness.

Make us well, so that by our healing,

we might be the hope and love others need in their lives,

even as Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior,

brought these gifts to us,

calling us to be faithful with the grace, peace, and joy entrusted to us.

Silent Prayer

 

Assurance of Pardon

Passing the Peace

                     Let us greet each other saying:

                                         ‘May the Peace of Christ be with you.’

Gloria

Affirmation

 

I believe that bread comes from grain

that grows in the wind

and the rain

with the farmers’ help

far from the eyes of city folk.

 

I believe that bread comes from love

the love of [God]

the love of the farmer

the love of the baker’s hands

the love of those who bring it to me.

 

I believe that bread can be

and should be broken

and shared

and given to all persons

until all have enough

and then some.

 

I believe that Jesus loved bread

and took it

and broke it

and blessed it

and fed his disciples

and asked them to feed us forever.

 

I believe enough in bread

to want it from Jesus

to want it to nurture me

to want his life through it

to want to give life through it.

 

I believe that his body as bread feeds me

and as part of his body

I want to be bread for others.

I believe the Spirit will help me

as well Jesus’ people. Amen.
