*Invocation (Unison)

God on high, what does peace even look like anymore? It feels so foreign, so often completely absent from the world we live in. Jesus, our Savior, is our peace. He is the one who brings calm and quiet and rest. Give us tangible moments of deep peace. Help us to believe that it is possible to experience peace even in the midst of chaos. Thank you, God, that peace is not lost. Just help us to know how to see it. Amen

Pastoral Prayer and Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
