CALL TO WORSHIP      Alice Bailey, Lector
In the beginning, God created the world, and God blessed it:
“It is good.”
In the beginning, God created light, and God blessed it:
“It is good.”
In the beginning, God created life, and God blessed it:
“It is good.”
Since the beginning, God has not stopped creating,
calling us closer to all that is good.

HYMN OF PRAISE “All Creatures of Our God and King” – GTG #15

CALL TO CONFESSION      Rev. Seth Thomas

PRAYER OF CONFESSION
God whose spirit moved over the waters,
you have washed us in your mercy,
claimed us as your own,
bound us in community,
and called us to lives of baptismal grace.
Forgive us, O God, for we have not lived
as if we were your baptized people.
We stumble over opportunities for forgiveness.
We prioritize our own selfish interests.
We are slow to disrupt the status quo,
even when it means ignoring our neighbors’ suffering.
Forgive us, O God, and by your forgiveness,
lead us back to your waters of transformation. Amen.
