*CALL TO WORSHIP                                                                               

      In the midst of life’s storms, God is there.

           What have we to fear?

      In the darkness and terror, God is with us.

           Of whom shall we be afraid?

        Rise up, people of God, for you are loved and saved.

           Thanks be to God who cares deeply for us. AMEN.



*HYMN OF PRAISE #368 (UM hymnal)                       “My Hope is Built”

*LITANY:                                                        “An Invitation to Trust”

      When dangers invade our sense of safety and we wonder if our Redeemer       

     cares, we hear the invitation:

         Be at peace. Be calm

      When we face job loss and financial downturns, and our sense of security   

      is shaky. We hear the invitation:

         Be at peace. Be calm

      When our congregations experience distress, conflict, and loss of significant                       leadership, we hear the invitation:

         Be at peace. Be calm           

      When controversial issues and rigidity of spirit threaten to tear at the very   

      fabric of the faith community, we hear the invitation:

         Be at peace. Be calm           

      When our lives feel chaotic and desolate because of illness or sorrow, we hear   

      the invitation:

         Be at peace. Be calm           

    All: Help us to know, O God, that the One who calmed the dangerous sea  

           is present with us, cares for us, and can calm the stormy waters of                                our lives. Help us to trust more fully and more deeply in you. We pray                      in the name of Jesus, who invites us to be at peace. Amen
