For January 18, 2015 -- The Temptation of Jesus.

CALL TO WORSHIP
As the week begins anew we come together for worship.
Gathering with friends new and old to explore where God is in our world.
Here in this place we open ourselves to look beyond our understandings
Here we come to be challenged to live as residents of the Kingdom of God
We open our worship together by exchanging words and signs of God's piece with our brothers and sisters in faith.

OPENING PRAYER
God of light, of love, of life,
we open our hearts, our ears, our minds, our souls to your presence.
In this time of singing, of praying, of listening,
challenge us about the ways we face temptation, awaken in us a vision of who you would have us be.
God of transformation, as we hear your call to a new life,
give us the courage to embrace transformation as we follow a new path.
We pray in the name of Jesus, our rock and redeemer, our teacher and guide, who taught his followers to pray saying...

In my search for an opening prayer for an annual meeting, I found your worship site and in turn, your blog. Thank you. Your motivational quote for today, January 18 was absolutely what I needed to "hear!" I am now a follower.
