ORDER FOR WORSHIP

PRELUDE                                                             Ta Wei Tsai

WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS               Lee Kosa

*CALL TO WORSHIP                                          Alice Bailey, Lector

Around the world people gather to break bread and pour wine.
We gather with them in heart and mind.
Around the world the broken body is made whole.
As part of that body we join in its unity.
Around the world the Banquet of God is prepared for the table.
We, who share in the banquet, come eagerly to be fed.
Let us worship together, let us share God’s bounty.

*HYMN OF PRAISE                 “For the Beauty of the Earth” GTG 14

CALL TO CONFESSION

PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Living Lord, by the power of your Spirit, you are present among us.
Yet, like the first disciples, we fail to see you in our midst.
We do not realize you are walking beside us,
for we are rushing to meet the demands
of hectic schedules and overcrowded lives.
We do not notice you in everyday encounters,
for we are distracted by daily labors
and consumed by our own concerns.
We do not recognize you on our streets or at our tables,
for our expectations are too limited
to imagine all the ways you dwell among us.
Open our eyes to perceive you in our midst,
so that—seeing you clearly—
we might follow you faithfully.
