August 16th, 2020
Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost
Greetings of Grace and Peace:
Call to Worship:
How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity!
It is like a summer rain which restores the parched earth.
It is like a cool breeze at the shore of a lake, at the top of a mountain or through a crowded city street.
God meets us here.
We have gathered to worship the Maker of Our Days, the Restorer of Our Souls and the Breath of Our Lives.
Opening Praise: I’m So Glad
Be with us, O God, and be gracious with your needy servants. To you we bring the cares of our lives, and the deepest yearnings of our souls. Strengthen us, we pray, by the healing balm of your love and the steadfast guidance of your teachings. We lift up our hands and open our hearts to your embracing and transforming love. Amen
Special Music: Pastor John and Sheena
Prayer of Confession:
God of steadfast love, we so often fail you. We nurture anger and violence, and fail to see that all people are your beloved children. Our words are destructive and hurtful. Teach us to imitate you. May love and kindness spring up in our lives. May we be tenderhearted and forgiving. May our words bring healing and reconciliation. Amen
Old Testament Lesson: Genesis 45:1–15
