That fills the heavenly dwelling place.

O Son of God, the source of life,

Praise is Your due by night and day.

Our happy lips must raise the strain

of your esteemed and splendid name. Amen.

and invites us to meet one another in this light.

All: Light breaks forth like the dawn,

drawing us into relationship with one another.

One: Humble yourselves for the worship of God,

that you may be empowered to serve.

All: God calls us to trust with steady hearts

and to serve with selfless compassion.

One: Seek not for lofty words of wisdom

Prayer of Confession

God of Light,

We confess that we have gone astray and have left your light.

We follow the false light of the world’s success and wealth.

We follow the dim light that calls us to be more religious by following rules.

We follow the fading light of personal glory.

Forgive us for not seeking the true light of your love for all the world.

Forgive us for not following the ways of Jesus who commanded us to love one another. Call us to be light-bearers of love, compassion, and justice in which the mystery of your love is revealed.

In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE
Exodus 20:1-17


20 Then God spoke all these words: 2I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; 3you shall have no other gods before me. 4You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the fourth generation of those who reject me, 6but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love me and keep my commandments. 7You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not acquit anyone who misuses his name. 8Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy. 9Six days you shall labor and do all your work. 10But the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God; you shall not do any work—you, your son or your daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock, or the alien resident in your towns. 11For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but rested the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day and consecrated it.
12Honor your father and your mother, so that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. 13You shall not murder. 14You shall not commit adultery. 15You shall not steal. 16You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. 17You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or male or female slave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

An Invitation for the Week to Come

      Consider the ways in which boundaries are a gift to you this week. Are there any ways in which you feel you must be ‘God-like” (all-powerful, all-in control, all-knowing,)? Can this sacred story from Exodus– this gift from God- give you the permission, with our ancestors, to simply be human? Consider the joy of having a God to follow who is not YOU!

 

We would love to connect with you further!
We are always eager for conversation over a cup of coffee or during a delicious meal.
