Liturgy based on II Kings, Jeremiah 32; 52

CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader: God of the exiled and the embraced
People: God of the fools and the wise ones
Leader: God of the ones who are obedient and those who go their own way
People: God of the generous and the power hungry
Leader: God of those who confess and those who seem unredeemable
People: We come to hear your challenging and hopeful word
Leader: To come face to face with ways we are like the prophets or like the kings
People: Ways we are exiled because of our choices or the decision of others
Leader: And ways we act, vote and live as Caesar.
People: We are ready; teach us now.

PRAYER

God of Each New Day, help us breath in the sights and smells of your creation and breathe out gratitude and joy for the wonders you have created. Help us breathe in your hope, even during the bleakest times, and offer that to a world in need. Be with us as we worship you that we can hear a word that will make us more obedient, less self-centered, more compassionate and less likely to follow for worldly gain. In the name of Christ who lived such a life we pray. Amen.
