Last Judgement Abundance of Justice

Call to Worship

Let the sea roar, and all that fills it.

The world and all those who live it.

Let the floods clap their hands, and the hills sing together for joy at the presence of the Lord.

Jesus is coming judge the world with righteousness and peoples with equity, let us Praise God’s Holy Name.

Call to worship

Sing to the Lord a new Song.

God has done fiercely amazing things.

Remember, God thinks on us with steadfast love and faithfulness.

Praise the Lord, for all ends of the earth will see the victory in our God. 

Call to Worship

Lord, as we approach you, as we look around the room

Help us to see your face

Lord as we feed the sick, and give relief to the thirsty and clothe the naked

Help us to see your face

Lord as we welcome the strange

Help us to see your face, today and everyday we pray

Call to Confession: The Lord hears us with steadfast love and faithfulness, so we know we can give our confession to God.

Confession: Lord we confess we cannot see your face. We are too busy look at the rich, influential and loud to see how power works. We confess that we forget that your power comes from servanthood. We forget to welcome those who are naked or lonely, we don’t do a good job of feeding and nourishing those who hunger and thirst. We confess that we would rather ignore those who are strange, than embrace them. Teach us to see your face, show us how to find you we pray. 

Confession: Lord we confess we need to see your face. Remind us of those we need to see your face in we pray (Silent Confession) …..Open our eyes we pray. Amen.

Confession: Lord, we confess that we would rather be shepherds, we forget that we are are all a part of your flock. Help us to stop sorting and instead share what we have among the rest of the flock we pray. Amen.

Confession: Lord we confess that we think Justice means equality, we obsess with who has what, and why it is they have it. We forget that God’s justice is different: full of love and grace. We do not act like a Matthew 25 people, forgive us, we pray. 

Assurance of Pardon: God has done a marvelous thing, showing the victory of Love through Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth. Therefore know the truth, In Jesus Christ we are forgiven. 

Assurance of Pardon: Remember: God will judge the world with righteousness and equity, and he sent Jesus Christ to save the world and not to condemn it. Therefore you are forgiven!

Prayer of Dedication/Prayer of the Day: Lord, commit us to one another and to you so that we can be feel, taste and be the body of Christ!

Prayer of Dedication/Prayer of the Day: Remind us that your gift to us is each other. We are here to be in relationship with each other. Let us use our gifts to help one another, we pray.
