Hymn: 385 All People on the Earth Do Dwell
Call to worship:
Leader: This is the day that the Lord has made.
All: Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Opening prayer (prayer of St. Francis)
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light; and
where there is sadness, joy.
O, God, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
Scripture Reading: Genesis 1:20-27
