*CALL TO WORSHIP                                                                               
      Today is the day of the Lord!
            We will consecrate it not with the clothing we wear, but with the coat
            we take off for the one without.
        Today is the day of the Lord!
            We will glorify it not with the full meals we eat, but with the food we
            prepare for the one without.
        Today is the day of the Lord!
            We will honor it not with the rites we perform, but with the welcome we
            extend to the one without. O God, behold our Sabbath, and declare the
            day good!
             
  *OPENING PRAYER
*HYMN OF PRAISE #398 (blue hymnal)                                 “Jesus Calls Us”
*LITANY FOR HUMAN RELATIONS DAY
     No longer will we cast our sisters from our midst;
           Like Christ, we cast our lot among them.
      No longer will we discount the troubles of our brothers;
           Like Christ, we count their loss our own.
      With faith we will build upon the ruins;
           Together we will dwell within their rooms.
      With hope we will plant where weeds have grown;
           Together we will sow tomorrow’s grain.
      With love we will find forsaken places;
           Together we will name the place of our meeting.
      And there faith and hope and love shall abide, and we will dwell in the house
      of the Lord!
