Marks of Vitality: Spirit-Inspired Worship
When God's people worship and praise with open hearts and joy, it is a taste of God's Reign among us on earth. We can embrace joy and wonder even as we face heartache and longing for redemption amidst disease, war, hunger, and pandemic.

Call to Worship
Thus says the Lord:
“I will put my breath within you, and you shall live.”
In gratitude, we praise the Giver of Life.
Jesus says: “I am the resurrection and the life.
In gratitude, we praise the Source of our Being.
We gather to worship the One who frees us from the grave
and stirs dry bones to life.
Spirit, come and enliven our worship!
Prayer of Confession
we have set our minds on wrong things—
on selfish gain, not generous service;
on pursuits that distract, not inspire;
on tasks that diminish, rather than give, life.
We long to set our minds on eternal things—
on your way of mercy and compassion;
on paths that lead to justice and peace;
on living as people of hope.
Spirit of God, dwell in us.
Give us grace when we fall short,
transform our hearts and renew our minds,
and set us free to follow you faithfully.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
