Call to Worship
One: We live at mystery's edge watching for a startling luminescence or a word to guide us.
All: In fragile occurrence the Holy One presents oneself and we must pause...
One: Daily, there are glimmers, reflections of a seamless mercy revealed in common intricacies.
All: These circles of grace spill out around us and announce that we are part of this mystery.
Singing Our Faith - Draw the Circle Wide

Reading a Word About Life - Acts 4:32-37
Now the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one claimed private ownership of any possessions, but everything they owned was held in common. With great power the apostles gave their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. There was not a needy person among them, for as many as owned lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold. They laid it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need. There was a Levite, a native of Cyprus, Joseph, to whom the apostles gave the name Barnabas (which means “son of encouragement”). He sold a field that belonged to him, then brought the money, and laid it at the apostles’ feet.
