*Invocation (unison)

O God of love, you have called us into the church.  We thank you for the opportunities to grow in understanding and concern for one another.  May our congregation be an incarnation of your love within and beyond these church doors, wherever there is loneliness, injustice, or misunderstanding; through Christ our Savior and the Holy Spirit our Strength. Amen.
