Call to Worship (adapted from Psalm 107):
L: O give thanks to the Lord for God is good;
ALL: God's steadfast love endures forever.
L: Some wandered in desert wastes, hungry and thirsty, their souls fainting within them.
P: They cried out to God, and God delivered them.
ALL: God's steadfast love endures forever.
L: God satisfies the thirsty, and fills the hungry with good things,
P: God turns a desert into pools of water, and lets the hungry live.
ALL: God's steadfast love endures forever.

Alternate Sung Call to Worship, for Psalm 107: "God's Steadfast Love Endures Forever"

Communion/Stewardship Meditation: We gather around this table knowing that it is not only we that gather, but also countless generations who have gone on before us.  Those who crossed the Red Sea as it parted, those who despaired of God's faithfulness and made a golden calf, those who wrote the gospel story for us to read, those who denied and betrayed the Christ in their weakness.  We gather with those who have gone before us, in their strength and their weakness, their healing and their brokenness; and we know them as kin.  We bring our gifts and tithes not as ones who are holy, but as ones who strive for holiness.  We ask God to take these gifts not only to bring justice and healing to our world, but also to expand our own hearts in greater generosity and freedom.
