CALL TO WORSHIP
From Beth Merrill Neel
We come to you, O God, to thank you for what is good.
We come to you, O God, to cry out for what is wrong.
We come to you, O God, to ask for help and restoration.
We come to you, O God, with aching hearts and glad souls.
Let us worship God.
Lord, Whose Love Through Humble Service
CALL TO CONFESSION AND PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Merciful God, we ask when was it that we saw you? You tell us the answer we are quick to forget. Just as you are present with us, you are present with those who are suffering. You call us to care for the hungry, the thirsty, the foreigner, the sick, the poor, and the incarcerated yet we look the other way. Forgive us for not seeing you in the ache of our neighbors. Forgive us for doling out quick fixes rather than committing to the neighborly love you call us to live out. Help us to see those who suffer, to listen to their voices, and to stand beside them. Help us to be confident enough in who we are in you, so we may build bigger tables and love and cherish all our neighbors just as you love and cherish us. Amen.
