Call to worship:

                Leader: Day has dawned!

                                The light of Christ has come into the world.

                People: We see God’s radiance in creation and in our lives.

                                We rejoice in God’s boundless riches given for all.

                                We worship and adore our Savior,

                                Christ the Lord.

                All:         Come! Let us walk in the way of God’s heart!

 

Prayer of Confession:

                Leader: Radiant God,

                People: We yearn to walk in your way

                               but often choose our own path of turmoil and pain.

                                Save us, Lord, from the pride and foolishness

                                of choosing our own course,

                               that we may humbly and confidently

                                follow your lead,

                               through Jesus Christ, Amen.

 

Words of assurance:

                Lead:   Throughout the tumult of life,

                                God holds you close in love.

                                Rejoice, because God’s wisdom is your guide,

                                God’s compassion is your strength.

                                God’s love is your redemption.

                All :    Come, let us walk in the way of God’s heart!

 

Sending:

            Lead:   Come! Walk in the way of God’s heart.

                        The dawn is breaking!

                        Christ has come to set us free.

                        He will show us the way. Alleluia!
