*CALL TO WORSHIP                                                 Jenny Sue LeSchander, Lector
Come, you who hunger for food.
Worship the Lord who turns wants into plenty.

Worship the Lord who turns weeping into laughter.
Come, you who hunger for life.
Worship the Lord who is our hope and our strength.

CALL TO CONFESSION                                                             Rev. Kyle Anderson     

PRAYER OF CONFESSION
O Christ,
when the crowds surrounded you, hungry for
     bread and for your word,
you took an offering—five loaves, two fish—
     and made for them a feast.
Still, O Lord, we doubt the abundance of your grace.
Still, O Lord, we are hesitant to share the gifts we have.
Still, O Lord, we wonder whether there is enough for all.
Forgive us, O God, and make of us a more
     generous people.
Empower us to share the gift of our lives,
and enlighten us to see the miracles around us.
For you are the giver of grace upon grace,
the one who turns want into plenty.
