ANNOUNCEMENTS

CALL TO CONTEMPLATION

Lord, I Am Not Worlhy

CALL TO WORSHIP* Here in this place

Is bread to ease our hunger.

Water to mark our acceptance, Touch to open us to healing.

A chalice to announce our forgiveness, A prayer to link  us to the Divine,

A friend to ease our loneliness, A song to awaken our joy.***

PRAYER OF INVOCATION*

Gracious  God,  your  Son  sowed  your  seeds  of  love  and  grace. Through the power  of your Holy Spirit, weed  out the things in our lives which  choke  out your  Word. Transform  the  hardness  of our  hearts, to nurture  the seeds that  falls upon them, that we  may  become the good earth, yielding the fruits of your Word. On Christ’s name we pray. Amen. ***
