CALL TO WORSHIP
I tell you this:
It is a wonderful thing when members of the family
live together in love and peace.
They shall be like trees planted beside flowing rivers.
May we be one,
that Christ may be glorified in us.
May we yield good fruit in season,
And may our leaves never wither.
The grace, mercy and peace of Christ
be with you all.
“There’s a Spirit of Love In This Place”
Lydia Muñoz, soloist
SCRIPTURE READING – Psalm 1
1 Happy are those
who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
or take the path that sinners tread,
or sit in the seat of scoffers;
2 but their delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law they meditate day and night.
3 They are like trees
planted by streams of water,
which yield their fruit in its season,
and their leaves do not wither.
In all that they do, they prosper.
4 The wicked are not so,
but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgement,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
6 for the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.

PRAYER OF THE DAY
Grace Losso Modla
You, loving God, are the ground of our being and the river of life;
you both steady our roots and draw them to seek the living waters.
You are like the sunlight enticing us taller
and like the breeze rustling our leaves.
You are with us through hard seasons of summer heat,
and in the nights when winter’s frost ice the landscape
your love warms and sustains us.
You are everything to us.
O let our gratitude be great,
let our praise be plentiful,
let our worship be wonder-full. Amen.
“Toccata on Lift Every Voice (closing passage)”
