Call to Worship:     Thom M. Shuman
One:  When we seek justice for the other,
  when we love kindness more than ever,
Many:  we live as God asks us to live.
One:  When we walk humbly through life,
  when we offer mercy to those who hurt us,
Many:  we are the blessing God hopes we will be.
One:  When we are willing to look foolish by following Jesus,
  when we choose weakness rather than power,
Many:  we reflect the One who is in our midst.

** Hymn      #450  Be Thou My Vision

**Affirmation of Faith
In life and death we belong to God.
We trust in Jesus Christ, fully human, fully God.
We trust in God, whom Jesus called Abba, Father.
In sovereign love God created the world good and
makes everyone equally in God’s image, male and female,
of every race and people, to live in one community.
We trust in God the Holy Spirit,
everywhere the giver and renewer of life.
With believers in every time and place,
we rejoice that nothing in life or in death can separate us
from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Scripture       Matthew 5: 1-12


Prayers of the People with the Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, 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 debts, as we forgive our debtors;
and lead us, not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

** Hymn        #172  Blest Are They

** Benediction

** Choral Blessing           (face center aisle to bless one another)
May the road rise to meet you,
may the wind blow at your back,
may the sun shine warmly on your face,
may the rain fall softly on your field,
and, until we meet again, until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of God’s hand.
