Call to Worship
May the light of God’s love push back the darkness.
We come to the light from the four corners of the earth,
from the north, from the south,
from the east, and from the west.
But we are all one in Jesus Christ.

We come from many nations and many cultures.
But we are all one in Jesus Christ.

We come seeking the light that guides us to life.
But we are all one in Jesus Christ.

Let us lift up our many voices and praise the God of all people.

 Psalm 34 (Taste And See)

Confession of Sin
God of all nations, we praise you that in Christ
the barriers that have separated humanity are torn down.
Yet we confess our slowness to open our hearts and minds
to people of other lands, tongues, and races.
Deliver us from the sins of fear and prejudice,
that we may move toward the day
when all are truly one in Jesus Christ.
Amen.

Raise Our Song

Assurance of Pardon
God of all nations, we praise you that in Christ
the barriers that have separated humanity are torn down.
Yet we confess our slowness to open our hearts and minds
to people of other lands, tongues, and races.
Deliver us from the sins of fear and prejudice,
that we may move toward the day
when all are truly one in Jesus Christ. Amen.

Benediction
We go, not as strangers,
but as members of God’s own family,
brothers and sisters through the blood of Jesus Christ.
Together, we are being built into a holy dwelling place
where God lives by the Spirit.

 So go out with joy and confidence
to love and serve the world,
for we do not go alone.
Peace be with you. 
And also with you.
