Silent Meditation

“Sabbath, in the first instance, is not about worship. It is about work stoppage. It is about withdrawal from the anxiety system of Pharaoh, the refusal to let one’s life be defined by production and consumption and the endless pursuit of private well-being.” — Walter Brueggeman

Opening Prayer

Pastor Kathy

Gracious God, our Holy Friend, remind us each morning that we are trustees of everything we have. Remind us each evening of the love that can both bless the day’s achievements and forgive the misuse of your gifts. In success or failure, may we honor you. Amen.

A Time of Prayer

Pastor Chelsea

Lord’s Prayer: Our Father/Mother/Creator/Parent, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
