Prelude His Eye is on the Sparrow
Call to Worship
Leader: I will bless the Lord at all times; God’s praise shall continually be in my mouth.
People: My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad.
Leader: O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt God’s name together.
People: I sought the Lord, who answered me and delivered me from all my fears.
Leader: O taste and see that the Lord is good;
People: Happy are those who take refuge in God.
Gracious God, we thank you for your promise to be with us and among us today as we worship you in a spirit of humility and holiness. We invite you to be our “true mirror,” to hold up before us your Word in such a way that we see our true selves. Help us also to see in a new way the fullness of your ineffable glory and transcendent grace and mercy. We await in the next hour your word to us, that by it we may be empowered to live in the world, announcing your rule of justice, reconciliation and peace. In the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Friend. Amen.
