Welcome and Intimations
The world belongs to God
THE EARTH AND ALL ITS PEOPLE
How good and how lovely it is
TO LIVE TOGETHER IN UNITY
Love and faith come together
JUSTICE AND PEACE JOIN HANDS
If God’s disciples keep silent
THESE STONES WOULD SHOUT ALOUD
God, open our lips
AND OUR MOUTHS SHALL PROCLAIM YOUR PRAISE.
Hymn 198 Let us build a house where love can dwell
Prayer of Approach and Confession [closing with]…
Our father in heaven,
Hallowed be your name
Your kingdom come, your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread
and forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Do not lead us into temptation
but deliver us from evil;
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,
Now and forever, Amen
