Call to Worship

Ascribe to the Lord , O families of the peoples,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength!
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
bring an offering and come before him!
Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness;
tremble before him, all the earth;
yes, the world is established;
it shall never be moved.
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice,
and let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”
Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
let the field exult, and everything in it!
Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy
before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth.
Oh give thanks to the Lord , for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever!
-1 Chronicles 16:28-34

Psalm 34 (Taste and See)

Confession
God, you placed us in the world to be its salt.
We are afraid of committing ourselves,
afraid of being stained by the world.
We do not want to listen to others,
and our salt dissolves as if in water.

Forgive us, Jesus.
God, you placed us in the world to be its light.
We are afraid of the shadows, the darkness of oppression.
We do not want to know other people’s struggles,
and our light slowly fades away.

Forgive us, Jesus.
God, you placed us in the world to live in community.
Thus you taught us to love, to share in life,
to struggle for bread and justice,
your truth embodied in our lives.

May it be so, Lord Jesus. Amen.


Assurance 
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
As far as the east is from the west,
so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
As a father shows compassion to his children,
so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.
— Psalm 103:1-5;12-13

Benediction
Being witness to the death and resurrection, let us proclaim the good news as the heirs of God. He who has adopted us, reconciled us to God through Christ, and given us the message of reconciliation as his ambassadors. Therefore, let us go with confidence and display the banner of truth for the lost to see and hear!
Amen.
