Call to Worship (based on Psalm 130)

L: Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD.
P: Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!
L: If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?
P: My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning.
All: O Israel, hope in the LORD! For with the LORD there is steadfast love, and with him is great power to redeem. It is he who will redeem Israel from all its iniquities.
 

Prayer of Confession

Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing you have
made and forgive the sins of all who are penitent: Create and
make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily
lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wickedness,
may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission
and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever
and ever. Amen.

Sermon Sampler:

Calling the Blessing Into Being
a sermon based on Ezekiel 37:1-14
by Cindy Weber

When my friend Ken Casey preached at my ordination service back in 1984, he told a story about when he was a little boy. His father was a doctor, a very busy man, and he would come in at the end of a long day, and he would sit down and read the newspaper. It was his way of unwinding. And little Ken would come up and tap him on the arm, and say, “Daddy, do you want to feel my muscle?” And his Daddy had a choice, you see, to either say, “No, son, I’m too tired,” or to put down his paper, which is what he usually did, and reach out and feel Ken’s little arm muscle. And when he did, he would say, “My goodness! Look at that big muscle! You’re going to be a strong man someday, son.”

Ken’s daddy had a choice, to either ignore Ken or to bless him . . .
