Prelude: Abraham, Martin and John by John Holler
Lighting the Chalice Flame (in unison): We light this chalice, recognizing our connective power and accepting our responsibility to be bold and courageous. Let this light be our symbol as we encourage those within and beyond our walls.
*Hymn #153 Oh, I Woke Up this Morning
Quiet Time, Meditation/Prayer/
Responsive Reading: # 508
Offertory: Blue Boat Home by Peter Mayer
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.
*Hymn: #149 Lift Every Voice and Sing
Sermon: Songs of Protest Jackie Maye
*Hymn #169 We Shall Overcome
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.
