Invocation:  (in unison)
O God of wisdom and hope, we hear you calling us from the gates of the city, from the places we go each day; where we live, where we work, where we play. You call us to celebrate and care for creation, to love and serve each other. Fill us with your spirit of understanding, we pray in Jesus name who taught us to pray;  Our Father, who are in heaven…….

Acknowledgement of our Flawed Humanity:
One: Let us open our heats and souls before God so that we can see our sinfulness and frailties before the all-holy God.
All: God of love, sometimes we forget that you made the world, and that you ask us to care for it. We forget that you made each of us, and have asked us to love each other. We forget that you are always here with us; but we look for some distractions to help us feel better. Forgive our forgetfulness, O Lord, we pray. Amen. (Moment of Silence)

Words of Pardon and Acceptance:
One: Sometimes we forget how much God loves us. Sometimes we forget that forgiveness is always there for us.
All: May we remember God's love and celebrate this good news always. Thanks be to God and praise His name forever. Amen.

Affirmation of Faith: “  The Apostles Creed # 918 VU

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ God's only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit;
the holy catholic Church; the communion of saints;
the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting. Amen.
