*CALL TO WORSHIP (Responsively)
L: Creator of calm, even with our uneasiness and fear, we approach You.

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION FOR AWARENESS OF MINISTRY
You call us to many ministries, O God. You call us to the
ministry of compassion. When we fail to notice need, or
when we turn away from the need, forgive us ! You call us
to many ministries, O God. You call us to a ministry of teaching. When we feel our learning days are over, or when
we hold back from communicating a new way, forgive us !
You call us to many ministries, O God. You call us to a ministry of forgiveness. When we will not see another’s
point of view, or when we cannot leave what is past in the past, forgive us ! You call us to many ministries, O God.
You call us to the ministry of proclaiming the Good News.
When we lack the courage to speak Christ’s hopeful and
loving message to our family and friends, forgive us !
