November 12, 2017 – After Pentecost

Guest Preacher this week!

Words of Welcome & Announcements

Lighting the Christ Candle & Acknowledgement of Place
As we gather to worship, let us pause to remember that in this region we live and work and worship on lands that are, by law, the unceded territories of the Wabanaki peoples—predominantly the lands of the Mi’kmaq, Maliseet, and Passamaquoddy. May we live with respect on this land, and live in peace and friendship with its people.

Hymn Take Time to Be Holy VU 672

Call to Worship “One: This is a time to be Holy.
All: We have gathered to celebrate God’s presence.
One: As we worship, we recognize where God has been in our lives this past week,
All: and we prepare ourselves to be God’s presence to others in the week to come.
One: Let us join our hearts in worship.

Opening Prayer “One: O God, who called all life into being,
All: the earth, sea and sky are yours.

One: Your presence is all around us,
All: every atom is full of your energy.

One: Your Spirit enlivens all who walk the earth,
All: with her we yearn for justice to be done,

One: For creation to be freed from bondage,
All: For the hungry to be fed,

One: For captives to be released,
All: For your kingdom of peace to come on earth.
Amen.          ( The Iona Community )
