We also invite families with toddlers or babies to make use of our Parent Corner at the entrance to the Sanctuary.

2 Welcome to Worship! Gathering Music Solemn Prelude on a Theme of Thomas Tallis Gerald Near Greeting Opening Litany (Note: Congregation will split into two groups for this 27 th Street side and Cloister side) One: On this day, we step into the presence of our God, praying with Jesus as he taught us to pray: All: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. One: With voices around the world, we pray: All on 27 th Street side: Creator God of many names, the beginning and the end of all there is, you created beauty out of chaos: blessed be your name. All on Cloister Side: Great Spirit whose home is anywhere and everywhere, beyond stars and moon, who lives in Syria and Mexico, with children in Afghanistan and Iraq: hallowed be your name. All: Loving God, our parent, you are in more places than heaven. You work in schools and offices, homes and fields. You take care of the sick and lift up the oppressed. Holy is your name. (Please stand as you are able) *Hymn #403 What A Friend We Have In Jesus. Call to Reconciliation and Affirmation Unison Prayer Holy God, there are times we come to you wishing we could keep silent.

Remind us that you are the sanctuary where nothing can harm us. In your steadfast love, forgive us. By your Holy Spirit, restore us. Page 2
