Order of Service, Nov 19, 2017

Prelude: Easy to be Hard (G. MacDermot, G. Ragni & J. Rado)


Lighting the Chalice Flame (in unison):
If ever there were a time for a candle in the darkness, this would be it. Using a spark of hope, kindle the flame of love within us all, ignite the light of peace in our world and fan the flame of justice for all.

*Hymn #188: Come, Come, Whoever You Are

Welcome and Announcements

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.

Quiet Time/Meditation/ Prayer

Sermon: Beyond Righteous Indignation -- Rev. Dr. Dan Lambert

Song: We Shall Overcome (Z. Hart, F Hamilton, G Carawan & Pete Seeger) (see insert)

Life of the Congregation

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.
