As the Cherith Dries Up

*Call to Worship & Confession of Sin

We come together even as the Cherith Brook dries up.
God calls us to worship in the easy times and the hard times.

Though we sometimes fail, we strive to offer grace to others.
God calls us to love and offer grace to all peoples.

When all seems lost, we are called to share our last bit of oil and flour.
God calls us to sacrificial giving.

Let us confess together,
When times are tough, when it is just too hard, we too often fail to love, share, and be your presence in the world. Forgive us God; move us to grace-filled living.

Let us worship the One who forgives us . Challenge and move us to live in such a way that people exclaim:
Now I know, you are people of God. Amen.
