**Confession and Assurance:
…believing that if we just hold things very tightly, we will survive.
   We yearn for lives that matter, we desire relationships that thrive, we want less regret.
…Let us respond together:
   We open our hearts, our minds, our souls, our vision to the ways
   of love created by God, embodied in Jesus, and already moving in
   us by the Spirit. We are forgiven, loved, and freed! Amen!

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                 Lord, If Only You Had Been Here         C.W. Gillette
                                   TUNE:  BEACH SPRING

    Go forth into the world, looking for love in all the right places!
   We will look for signs of The Liberator, shedding the shrouds of death to live and love freely!

**Choral Response
Hearts open, minds awake,
change us now for heaven’s sake.
Leave us not alone in hatred’s wake.
Show us how to love.
Show us how to love.
Show us how, show us how to love.
