CALL TO WORSHIP
Psalm 62:5-8
For God alone my soul waits in silence,
for my hope is from him.
God alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress;
I shall not be shaken.
On God rests my deliverance and my honor;
my mighty rock, my refuge is in God.
Trust in God at all times, O people;
Pour out your heart before the Lord;
God is a refuge for us.

Our Father/Mother/Creator, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
