Call to Worship (based on Psalm 8)
God, how majestic is your name in all of the earth.
When I look at your heavens, thew work of you fingers: the moon and the stars. I think, what are human beings that you are mindful of them?
Yet you have put us a little lower than you, and crowned us we glory and honor!
O God, how majestic is your name in all of the earth.
Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31
Prayer of Confession: God, we confess that we do not always feel that your wisdom is present. We confess that this lack makes it hard to practice grace, that suffering seems abundant, and endurance lacking. We confess that we do not always find hope. Send us your Holy Spirit to supply whatever it is we need we pray. Amen. . (Silent Confession). Amen.
Assurance of Pardon: Christ advocates for us, always, so we know the truth: In Jesus Christ you are Forgiven
Prayer of Dedication (based of Proverbs 8:30-31): Remind us that your wisdom delights in us, daily, rejoicing in the inhabited world, and in humanity. Send us into the world holding tight to that we pray. Amen.
Hymns: Immortal Invisible God Only Wise, God of the Sparrow, God of the Ages Whose Almighty Hand, Great God We Sing That Mighty Hand, When in Our Music God is Glorified, God who stretched the spangled heavens
Children: Compare and Contrast what God considers “Power” (serving, love, creating things) to human Power (money, politics, popularity)
