CALL TO WORSHIP
Rend your hearts and not your clothing.
Return to the Lord, your God,
For he is gracious and merciful,
Slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love,
And relents from punishing.
OPENING HYMN: “For the Beauty of the Earth” #92 UMH
OPENING PRAYER O Lord our God, teach us temperance and self-control,
That we may live in the spirit
And be mindful of all that Jesus endured and sacrificed for our sakes,
And how he was made perfect through sufferings.
Help us so to keep the fast that you have chosen,
That we may loose the bonds of wickedness,
Undo the heavy burdens, and let the oppressed go free:
Through the grace of Christ Jesus our crucified and risen Savior. Amen
