CALL TO WORSHIP

Please join me in this morning’s responsive call to worship.

God you called Abram and Sarai
And Abraham and Sarah said here I am Lord
God you walked with Ruth and Mara
And Ruth promised to Naomi: Your God will be my God
God your wrestled with Jacob
And Israel made peace with his brother Esau
God you are always present with us.
Here I am Lord, we are here with the lord, our God today.
Let us worship God.

SCRIPTURE

Numbers 6:22-26
The Lord Adoni spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to Aaron and his heirs, saying: This is how you will bless the Israelites: you shall say to them: 

The Lord Adoni bless you and keep you; may the Lord’s face shine upon you and be gracious to you, may the Lord Adoni’s countenance look kindly upon you, and give you peace. 

Isaiah 6:​​6 Then one of the seraphs flew to me, holding an ember which it had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 The seraph touched my mouth with the ember. “See,” it said, “now that this has touched your lips, your corruption is removed, and your sin is pardoned.” 8 Then I heard the voice of the Holy One saying, “Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?” “Here I am,” I said, “send me!”

This is the Word of the Lord, thanks be to God.

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
