Welcome and Life of the Church
*Call to Worship When the world is dark and full of hate and fear, when we cannot see God, we will turn on the light. When we cannot find our way back to love and peace, we will turn on the light. When our vision dims due to the darkness within, we will turn on the light. Christ opens our eyes with the gift of sight. The light of the world is Jesus Christ. Come and worship the One who brings sight to the blind. Hallelujah! Praise God, the light of the world!

Prayer of Confession (in unison, followed by silent prayer) Today we close our eyes and place our hands over them… Lord God, forgive us for turning our eyes away from You. Forgive us for being dissatisfied with the good things You have given… Lord God, have mercy on us. We place our hands on our lips… Lord God, we are sorry for the things we have spoken which hurt or condemn. Open our lips and we will tell of Your love… Lord God, have mercy on us. We place our hands over our heart… Lord God, create in us a clean heart. Forgive our self-centeredness and fill us with Your Holy Spirit—to live for others… Lord God, have mercy on us. We open our hands and hold our palms out to God… Lord God, forgive us for not doing the good You place before us. Help us to use our hands for Your glory… Lord God, have mercy on us. (silent prayer) Amen.
