DOXOLOGY & CALL TO WORSHIP

Lord of mercy, we gather because we need your healing.
Lord of grace, we gather because we need your hope.
Lord of compassion, we gather because we need your kindness.

We gather today in confidence that we will experience you.
We gather today, in the gracious presence of a living savior
Our powerful Creator
And in the power of the renewing Spirit.

Missio, this is you call to worship.

SERMON

Questions to consider as we lead out in our every day lives to challenge us in how we love people around us like Jesus loves and how we carry our crosses:

1. Who do you judge most quickly?
2. What would it take to see them in compassion?
3. Who do you need to forgive?
4. How can you invite that person home? Restoration.
5. Where have you protected yourself from other peoples’ burdens?
6. Where do you boast?

BENEDICITON

“Jesus said,

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Missio, in Jesus you’ve experienced rest and healing. Go now and extend rest. Go now and be the church this week.
