Call to Worship
One: O God! As we gather in worship now, let us join in the song of all creation!This blue green planet spins in joy, and moment by moment, pink sunrises and orange sunsets arewastefully spilled over some pale blue sky. The whole spectrum of light harmonizes in singing praiseto the Creator:
All: But your glory, O God, is still more than we have imagined!
One:From the menacing and murky colors of pollution seen in the rainbow reflection from an oil slick to thedark greens and blacks of rainforests and the gentler pastels of meadowland and pasture.
The wholespectrum of light sings praise:
All:But your glory, O God, is still more than we have imagined!
One:From the red-stained shirt and every-color of camouflaged uniforms in times of unrest and war to theendless blue of pacific island nations and the burnt umbers and yellow sand of desert nations. Thewhole spectrum of light sings praise:
All: But your glory, O God, is still more than we have imagined!
One:From the blacks and yellows of the beehive or the reds and browns of the anthill, to the diversity o brown and pink in human skin. The whole spectrum of light sings praise:
All:But your glory, O God, is still more than we have imagined!
One:As we join together in unity to worship and adore you, Living God, our faces are radiant from your glory. But reveal to us some new shade of your greatness, some bright tone of your grace, some subtleaspect of your love that we have not yet imagined.
Great Is Thy Faithfulness—Mike’s arrangement
Great is Thy faithfulness, O God Creator There is no shadow of turning with Thee; Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail notAs Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.(Chorus) Great is Thy faithfulness, great is Thy faithfulness!Morning by morning new mercies I see;All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!
Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,Sun, moon and stars in their courses above, Join with all nature in manifold witness To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.ChorusPardon for sin and a peace that endureth, Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!Chorus
Invocation—Rev. Elder Diane Fisher
Spirit of Life and Love, God of Many Names and Every Tribe, we call on you togather with us in this sacred space, to begin tonight the radical transformation thatwe will experience here together in the coming days. We anticipate thattransformation, we desire that transformation, and we long for that transformation.But, dear God, we are burdened. We are burdened by fear. We are burdened bydisagreement and anger. We all want the best, and yet we sometimes stronglydisagree about how to achieve that best end. And so, God, we call on you to uniteus once again. Restore our commitment not just to MCC, but to one another...toour community...to our family...to YOUR body, Christ. We love you, and we thankyou that you have instilled in us the message of your inclusive love for all who arein the margins of this world. May our ministry to those margins continue to beblessed, both in this place and around the world. Amen.
Welcome, Introductions, etc.—Rev. Elder Nancy WilsonAnnouncements—Rev. Wes MullinsPass the PeaceSong—This is How We Overcome—AGC Band and AGC Praise Singers
 Your light broke through my nightRestored exceeding joy Your grace fell like the rainAnd made this desert liveChorus: You have turned my mourning into dancing You have turned my sorrow into joy Your hand lifted me upI stand on higher ground Your praise rose in my heartAnd made this valley sing(Chorus) This is how we overcome
 This is how we overcome(Chorus)
Readings: Ephesians 3:20-21 and Jeremiah 17:7-8—Larry Rodriguez
Now to the One who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly farmore than all we can ask or imagine, to the One be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.Blessed are those who trust in the Lord,whose trust is the Lord. They shall be like a tree planted by water,sending out its roots by the stream.It shall not fear when heat comes,and its leaves shall stay green;in the year of drought it is not anxious,and it does not cease to bear fruit.
Sermon—Rev. Nancy WilsonSermon Response—Special Music Toronto—“Total Praise”Invitation to Ritual—Rev. Elder Lillie Brock

Communion—Rev. Elder Darlene GardnerCommunion songs (led by Toronto Choir)Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread
Give us this day our daily bread You said you would supply all my needs, according to your richesI have but to ask and I shall receive To go from here and share this love you’ve given me To show the ones who’re lost and help them find the way The way to truth and love, so they can be freeOh God, we need your loveOh God, we need your peaceOh God, we need your joy, so we can be freeGive us this day our daily bread
I Will Pledge This Song To You
 You are holy, You are holy, and my life is in Your hands You are worthy, You are worthy. Take my life and all I amEvery dream I’ve known, Every heartache too, They have all been shared with youAll the times I’ve failed, been unkind to You,I have known your mercy too.Chorus
