For November 16, 2008 -- Proper 28, 27th After Pentecost

CALL TO WORSHIP
On the horizon a light starts to glow.
Day is at hand!
We come to face the dawn of a new day.
We come to welcome the day that God has made.
We come to worship with song and prayer.
We come with praises and hopes.
Let us worship together, let us pray…

OPENING PRAYER
Giver-of-all, as we wait for your day to dawn we gather in worship. In this time together may we be gifted with hope and promise for that day to come. May the sharing of Your word and presence give us the courage to find hope in the midst of chaos, dawn in the falling night. Amen.

COMMISSIONING AND BENEDICTION
On the horizon a light starts to glow.
Day is at hand!
Go now from this place of worship and out into the world.
We go to greet the new day. We go to tell of the dawn that is breaking.
As you go take heart. No matter how chaotic the world may seem God walks with you always. God, our help in ages past, will comfort and support you.
Our hope for years to come! Thanks be to God.
