PRELUDE

“The Peace May be Exchanged” by Dan Locklair

GATHERING AND GREETING 


CALL TO WORSHIP (BASED ON PSALM 107)
One: Give thanks to the Lord because God is good,

All:  because God’s faithful love lasts forever!

One: Some wandered, lost and afraid,

All: but God heard their cries, and offered signs of peace.

One: Some were hungry and thirsty, 

All: but God saw their distress, and offered signs of love. 

One: Some were in darkness and depression,

All: but God felt their pain, and offered signs of hope.
The Lord’s faithful love lasts forever!  


OPENING PRAYER
God, there are times in our lives when we ask if you are with us,
and wonder if you hear our cries.  
In our times of pain and confusion, send us signs of your presence.
In our times of worry and fear, send us signs of your peace.
In our times of hunger and thirst, give us a sign of your love.  
Remind us that we never wander without you.  
Remind us to turn toward you in our distress.
Remind us of the times when you have been faithful to us in the past,
so that we may declare that your faithful love lasts forever!  Amen.
