WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

Leader:  The highway of the upright avoids evil; those who guard their ways preserve their lives.

 

People:  Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.

CALL TO WORSHIP

 

Leader:  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

People:  We will pray with all the ease and familiarity of small children to earthly parents.

 

 

PRAYER OF INVOCATION

 

“Gentle Jesus, meek and mild, Look upon a little child; Pity my simplicity, Suffer me to come to thee.”  Heav’nly Parent, hear my prayer, Grant me only what is fair As to others you would give:  Life eternal let me live.  Holy Spirit, fresh’ning wind, Blow away all thoughts of sin, Mind of Christ within me leave; Childlike innocence retrieve.”  Amen.  Amen.
