We Gather in Worship

“Jacob Wrestles the Angel” by Jack Baumgartner

Meditation Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“Cheap grace is preaching forgiveness without repentance; it is baptism without the discipline of community; it is the Lord’s Supper without confession of sin; it is absolution without personal confession. Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without the living, incarnate Jesus Christ.”

Prelude Movement 2 from Organ Sonata J.S. Bach

Greeting and Announcements Rev. David Oliver-Holder
The Lord be with you.
And also with you.

*Call to Worship Liz Greeley
L: God meets us when we need God most
A and satisfies us with God’s divine presence and provision.
L: We find our spirits calmed and our hearts warmed.
A: We find our mouths filled with thanksgiving.

*Prayer of the Day Liz Greeley
Life-changing God, you have touched us and transformed us to reach out to all who hunger for what only you can give. Keep our feet in your paths and bless us to multiply blessings to others, through Jesus Christ our Redeemer and Lord. Amen.
