OPENING HYMN     Because He Lives”      UMH # 364 lyrics


 
*CALL  TO  WORSHIP

Leader: If I speak in the tongues of mortals and of angels,
but do not have love.

People: I am a noisy gong or clanging cymbals

Leader: And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all
mysteries and all knowledge.

People: and if I have faith, so as to remove mountains,
 but do not have love, I am nothing.

Leader: If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over
 my body so that I may boast

P: but do not have love, I gain nothing.

 MORNING PRAYER
Lord, help us to remember that love begins with you. Help us also to remember our ancestors who have gone before us and endured pain and struggles to bring us where we are today. Amen
