+Call to Worship                                                                    David Smith        

Leader: The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.
People: He makes me lie down in green pastures;

Leader: he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul.

People: He leads me in right paths for his name's sake.

Leader: Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me;

People: your rod and your staff—they comfort me.

Leader: You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;

People: you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Leader: Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,

People: and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD my whole life long.


O God, in whom are met all the issues of life and death, and who knows us and our frailties better than we know ourselves, we cast ourselves upon your mercy and ask for your continued grace in our lives.  We praise you for the little things that make our days so rich and meaningful: the touch of a friend, the sight of a child sleeping, the memory of a good time, the sound of a particular voice, the appearance of a flower where yesterday there was none.  Forgive us for days spent in not seeing, not hearing, not being open to the miracles that abound at our elbows and fingertips.  Teach us to be sensitive: to know when a star falls, when a friend hurts, when the wind stirs, when someone needs something we have in our possession. Show us, in our faith, how to be transparent: so to live and move and think and care that others, looking upon us, see you and know that all creation is one in your love.  Amen.
