Liturgy of Worshio
This is the day that the Lord has made
Let us rejoice and be glad in it
Opening prayer of confession
Gracious and merciful God, again we are gathered in your name. Even when we are far in distance, we are close in Spirit, and in your presence always. We confess that we have fallen short of what you call us to be. You know what is in our hearts. You know our tendency to isolate for our neighbors and from you. Forgive us. Help us to live as your people even in the midst of great change. Amen.
Assurance of Pardon
In Christ we are made new creations. Know that you are forgiven and be at peace.
1 Samuel 17 (Children of God Storybook Bible)
