Good Morning!
Spiritual Formation is on hiatus through August. The Zoom worship space will open at 10:45 am today.

Call to Worship
One: We think of this place as “sacred space.”
All: We make this into sacred space by bringing our awareness and intention with us. 
One: God of Presence all around us, help us to find and to celebrate the goodness that is given to us.
All: We celebrate the richness and diversity of life. 

Singing Our Faith - Those Who Wait On the Lord

Reading a Word About Life - Luke 4:1-4
Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing at all during those days, and when they were over, he was famished. The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become a loaf of bread.” Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘One does not live by bread alone.’”

Sabbath Poetry for Preparation and Intention Setting
Seek Not Water

seek not water

Sending Forth
One: The God we worship is never confined to this holy place. So go out into Creation and travel with the God who is found in ordinary and surprising places.
All: May the quality of our lives be our benediction. May our lived values be a blessing to all whom we touch.
One: These are the times!
All: We are the people!
One: All of Creation is blessed!
All: May we love all and serve all!
One: God be with you. 
All: And also with you.
One: Amen.
All: Amen.

~Go In Peace~

We will gather for worship at 10:15 am on August 1. We are planning for Coffee Chat in Smith Hall following this service, depending on CDC guidance and local COVID transmission rates.
