PRELUDE & CANDLE LIGHTING 

WELCOME 

*CALL TO WORSHIP   (Fred Ito)

Who are we that we can assume God’s love?  

Who are we that we can boast of God’s care?  

Who are we to accept God’s grace?
We are God’s friends, we are God’s beloved, that’s who we are.

Let us worship God!

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Merciful God, wonderful and mysterious, generous and patient, we do not understand your unconditional love for us, and yet we are grateful for it.  You sent your Son to live among us, to die and rise again that we might be reconciled to you.  You offer us so much and too often we are less than grateful. Forgive us, O God, for those times when we fail to appreciate all you have done for us and all you continue to do.  O God, we long to be faithful servants; help us in our striving, guide us in your way.  So be it.  Amen.
