SUNDAY, August 4, 2019 Dorchester United Church WE GATHER TO PRAISE GOD
ACKNOWLEGEMENT OF THE LAND
We acknowledge that we worship and live onthe traditional
territory of the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Attawandaron (Neutral), and
Wedat peoples. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties.
(We invite you to quiet reflection and
preparation for worship)
CALL TO WORSHIP:
We gather together this morning to remember and share the love God
shares with us.
Though we dimly reflect Divine Love, we can work to love better and
recognize we are fed and loved by God.
Reminded that God's compassion is ever growing.
Though we stumble through our mistakes, we will not be left to wallow
helplessly in our failures but encouraged by your love to persevere.
PASSING OF THE PEACE-
The Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Love of God, and the Fellowship of
the Holy Spirit be with you…
And also with you
As you are able and comfortable, let us make peace with one another.

CHILDREN'S TIME, LIGHTING OF THE CHRIST CANDLE, LORD'S PRAYER
Jesus Christ is the light of the world.
Jesus is our friend who loves us always
We are not alone,
we live in God's world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus,
the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others
by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the Church:
to celebrate God's presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.
