Ingathering: Why can’t a man stand alone by Elvis Costello-piano only


Prelude: Why can’t a man stand alone by Elvis Costello


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

Lighting the Chalice Flame (in unison):
Let the lighting of this flame rekindle in us the inner light of love, of peace, of joy, of hope. And as one flame lights another, we pledge ourselves to be bearers of the light wherever we are.


Quiet Time/Meditation/Prayer

Offertory: Find a Stillness

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.

Musical Interlude: Hold On by Kansas; lyrics edited by Karl Ostermann

Sermon: Finite or Infinite?  Karl Ostermann

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.

Closing Words

Postlude:  What’s so Funny about Peace, Love and Understanding by Nick Lowe
Gratitude & Applause
* Please stand in body or spirit
 Hearing devices, and envelopes for cash pledges are available on the hymnal cart or ask an usher.
