ANNOUNCEMENTS 
PRELUDE 

* CALL TO WORSHIP (Responsively)

 L: And God said, "This is my Child, with whom I am well pleased."
P: But this One has no splendor, no beauty we would fancy.
L: "This is my child in whom I take delight."
P: But this one carries the load of a servant, not the scepter of a king.
L.: "This is my Child, whom I have called."
P.: But this One demands justice from all earth's nations. His words shall judge our own.
L.: "This is my Child, whom I uphold."
P.: But this One would release the dungeon's prisoners. He would set the captives free.
 

*UNISON PRAYER
Oh God, open your heaven and descend like a dove upon the world.  Make plain Your hidden plan, Your mysterious
purpose for our lives.  Standing in the waters of our baptism,
we await Your presence.
Amen
