*CALL TO WORSHIP

Come and worship in God who is our hope.

Our world is scary and we need a lot of hope.

God is the source and ground of our tomorrow.

We confess that God is our only hope.

God invites us to trust in the divine love around us.     

We know our God is faithful. In God alone we trust.

 

*OPENING PRAYER

*HYMN OF PRAISE #77 (Um hymnal) “How Great Thou Art”

*LITANY “Let Our Lord Be Genuine”

The Lord does not call us to conform to the demands of the world.

The Lord calls us to transform the world by our obedience to the demands

 of God.

When our neighbors curse us, let us not curse them in return.

Let us love as you love, O Lord. Let our love be genuine.  

When our neighbors seek our help, let us not leave them to the charity of the wealthy.

Let us love as you love, O Lord. Let our love be genuine.

When our neighbors disturb the peace at our expense, let us not avenge ourselves.

Let us love as you love, O Lord. Let our love be genuine.

When our neighbors hunger or thirst, let us minister to them according to their need.

Let us love as you love, O Lord. Let our love be genuine.

            Let us not be overcome by evil. Let us overcome evil with good.
