Call to Worship

Soft summer rain falling on parched earth

Waters of God, flow down upon us.

Torrential floods ripping lives into pieces

Waters of God, have mercy upon us.

Soaking waters which nourish the seed

Waters of God, replenish us.

 

Litany of Confession

For refusing to hear you cry

pouring forth in Honduras and Nicaragua,

Lord have mercy,

Lord have mercy,

Have mercy upon us.

For refusing to hold your hand

held out by the neighbor across the aisle,

Christ have mercy,

Christ have mercy,

Have mercy upon us.

For refusing to wipe your tears

falling on the face of our parent, our child, our partner,

Lord have mercy,

Lord have mercy,

Have mercy upon us.

Call to Worship

The Word of God is planted in our hearts.

May our hearts be receptive to the Word.

The Love of God rains down on us.

May our souls soak in the wonder of God’s love.

The Breathe of Godde blows softly within us.

May our minds be stirred by the power of God’s spirit.
