CALL TO WORSHIP
You asked for my hands,
That you might use them for your purpose.
I gave them for a moment, then withdrew them,
For the work was hard.
You asked for my mouth
To speak out against injustice.
I gave you a whisper that I might not be accused.
You asked for my eyes
To see the pain of poverty.
I closed them, for I did not want to see.
You asked for my life,
That you might work through me.
I gave a small part, that I might not get too involved.
Lord, forgive my calculated efforts to serve you-
Only when it is convenient for me to do so,
Only in those places where it is safe to do so,
Only with those who make it easy to do so.
Father, forgive me,
Renew me, send me out
As a usable instrument,
That I might take seriously
The meaning of your cross. Amen.
OPENING HYMN: “Hosanna, Loud Hosanna” #278 UMH
OPENING PRAYER Almighty God,
On this day your Son Jesus Christ entered the holy city of Jerusalem
And was proclaimed King
By those who spread their garments and palm branches along his way.
Let those branches be for us signs of his victory,
And grant that we who bear them in his name
May ever hail him as our Lord,
And follow him in the way that leads to eternal life.
In his name we pray. Amen

O God, most merciful and gracious,
