INTROIT   Hymn   555             “Worship the Lord”

CALL TO WORSHIP               (standing)

Come, let us give thanks to God!

We gather together to praise the One who strengthens the weak and hears the prayers of the forgotten.

 Come, let us give thanks to Jesus the Christ!

We gather together to sing of the One who calls us to feed the hungry, to visit the lonely, to care for the oppressed, and to welcome the stranger.

 Come, let us give thanks to the Spirit!

We gather together to exalt the One who provokes us to love not only our family and friends, but also the guest among us. 

God’s people have gathered,

let us worship the Lord.

RESPONSE OF FAITH (adapted from the Iona Abbey Worship Book)

O Christ, kindle within our hearts a flame of love to our neighbour, to our foes, to our friends, to our kindred all. 

O Christ of the poor and the yearning, from the humblest thing that lives, to the name that is highest of all, kindle within our hearts a flame of love.
