Hymns

OPENING WORDS  Mark Beaty, Lector

O give thanks to the Lord, call on God’s name,
make known God’s deeds among the peoples.
Sing to God, sing praises to the Lord;
tell of all God’s wonderful works.
Glory in God’s holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Seek the Lord and God’s strength;
seek God’s presence continually.
Remember the wonderful works the Lord has done,
God’s miracles, and the judgments the Lord uttered,
O offspring of God’s servant Abraham,
children of Jacob, the Lord’s chosen ones.

HYMN OF PRAISE “O Day of Rest and Gladness” – GTG #393                                

CALL TO CONFESSION Rev. Seth Thomas

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Lord of wind and waves, creation and creatures, your power is at work everywhere, stilling the storms, offering peace, lifting us up from the depths of our greatest fears. You come to us immediately when we call and yet we still lack faith in your ability and will to work within and around us. We get distracted and afraid, focused on that which threatens us rather than the One who saves us. We act out of a sense of scarcity as if there is not enough of God’s love, grace, and abundant goodness for everyone. In our anxiousness we hurt those entrusted to our care, we injure the earth we are to steward and we fail to tend your sheep. Forgive our failings and mistakes and in your mercy reform us into the people you call us to be, those blessed to be a blessing. Amen.
