Hymn #188 Come, Come, Whoever You Are
Prelude: Singing Bowl meditation
Lighting the Chalice Flame (in unison):
In these difficult times, let us look first to the response of love. In the midst of challenge, may our chalice flame bear witness to the inherent worth and dignity of every human being. In the midst of uncertainty, may our chalice be a beacon of encouragement, that our values may guide our choices. Let us look first to the response of love.
*Hymn #360: Here We Have Gathered
Reading: The Hungry Spirit by Charles Handy
Quiet Time/Meditation/ Prayers
Offertory: Breath In, Breath Out, Move On, by Jimmy Buffett
Affirmation (in unison) Love is the spirit of this congregation and service is its law. This is our great covenant: to dwell together in peace, to seek the truth in love and to help one another.
Sermon: Spiritual Capitalism Dr. Richard Hattwick
*Hymn# 128: For All That Is Our Life
Extinguishing the Chalice Flame (in unison) We extinguish this flame, but not the light of truth, the warmth of community, or the fire of commitment. These we carry in our hearts until we are together again.
Postlude: For What It’s Worth, by Buffalo Springfield
