One: The Lord is king! Let us all rejoice in the earth.
All: The heavens proclaim God's righteousness
for all creation to behold God's glory.

to touch the divine presence among us.
All: You protect the lives of the godly people
and call all
of us to let God's light shine.

"I will test my people with this plumb line.
I will no longer ignore all their sins."

righteousness, we deserve to be judged by you when our words and
deeds do not reflect your justice, your mercy and your love. So, we
praise you for gathering us here so that we can focus on you as the
reason for our worship. We worship you as the one who gives meaning
and order to our lives - and - more than that, you have given us a
quality of life we could never achieve on our own. In your great
love for the world, you chose to enter our history and our lives in
the form of a helpless baby. How can we do other than praise and
adore you for choosing to clothe your divinity in such vulnerable
love. May we clothe our humanity with a like vulnerability -
emptying ourselves of all self-serving power so that we can love you
with all our heart, soul, strength and mind, and love our neighbor
as we love ourselves. This we pray in Jesusí name. Amen

All of us who are in love and fellowship in the family of
God, who do truly and earnestly repent of our sins, who humbly put
our trust in Christ, and who desire his help that we might walk in
newness of life, are invited to draw near to God and receive this
holy communion to our comfort, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
