Spiritual Formation (adult Sunday School) is back! Join us by Zoom at 9:00 am or show up in the Shadow Rock Multipurpose Room! Our topic for September and October is "Wading Into Theology," informed by Elizabeth Johnson's Quest for the Living God. This week, we'll seek a 10,000 foot view of liberation theology: God with a bias toward the poor, present in liberating action. Everyone is welcome - come prepared to share your journey with others in ways that feel best for you.
Greeting and Announcements
No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!
Get ready to share celebrations and prayer requests. Zoom worshippers can unmute and share when invited to do so or use the chat function anytime. All congregants can text Pastor Ken at 480-263-3308. In-person worshippers can also write a card with their celebration or prayer concern.

Call to Worship
One: We invite the mountains to worship with us:
All: mighty boulders and deep forests, rock slides and swirling dust.
One: We invite the wild to join us in wonder:
All: gliding eagles and javelina, mysterious moths and magic mushrooms.
One: We join mountain creatures in praising God:
All: leaping trout and crawling creatures, exotic desert blooms and honey bees.
One: We call the depths of the mountains to celebrate:
All: precious gems and sparkling stones, volcanic lava and rich red ore.
One: We enter the mountain of God today:
All: and we worship in God’s presence, a sacred place on our planet.
One: Sing, mountains, sing!
All: Sing, creation, sing!
Singing Our Faith - "Weave, Weave"
Meditation - Breath Prayer
Sit and be attentive to the pattern of breathing, the natural movement of inhalation and exhalation, the in and out rhythm of this physical gift of life.
