Gathering

Call to worship:

Today I want a new world

a world of love

where all people

really love each other.

Lord, give me your breath

so I can sing

to all the nations

that they would live as one family.

I also give you thanks

for all of humanity

and pray that your will would always be done.

–Gissel (9) and Zuleima (10) Sampayo and Marta Ortiz

Singing:

HWB 55 Cantemos al Señor

HWB 226 You are salt for the earth

STJ 69 Cuando el pobre

Confessing:

HWB 756

Response hymn: HWB 358 (Oyenos, mi Dios)

Hearing the Word:

If you remove the yoke from among you,

the pointing of the finger, the speaking of evil,

if you offer your food to the hungry

and satisfy the needs of the afflicted,

then your light shall rise in the darkness

and your gloom be like the noonday.

The LORD will guide you continually,

and satisfy your needs in parched places,

and make your bones strong;

and you shall be like a watered garden,

like a spring of water,

whose waters never fail.

Your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt;

you shall raise up the foundations of many generations;

you shall be called the repairer of the breach,

the restorer of streets to live in.

–Isaiah 58:9b-12

Praying :

Dear God,

In these times of searching for peace and resolution to conflicts

Establish your peace, O Lord!

In the midst of corruption, impunity and violence,

Establish your peace, O Lord!

In the midst of the journey of your Colombia people,

Establish your peace, O Lord!

In this searching for justice and peace for Colombia,

Establish your peace, O Lord!

In the midst of the pain of children, women and men,

Establish your peace,O Lord!

Establish your peace, O Lord, according to your will.

Amen.

–Adaia Bernal
