Call To Worship:           Psalm 101

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.
        Worship the Lord with gladness;
        come into his presence with singing.
    Know that the Lord is God.
    It is the Holy One that made us, and we are God’s;
        we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
    Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
    and his courts with praise.
        Give thanks to God, bless God’s name.
    For the Lord is good;
        God’s steadfast love endures forever,
        and his faithfulness to all generations.

Where is the Light?

Oh! The light’s inside of me!

Opening Prayer:

Living God, we embrace your presence in our lives. Help us to grow stronger together in your garden of love. Plant us together in your peace. Root us together in your hope. Transform us together by your equal justice for all. In your loving presence, we pray. Amen.
