Christ is our Light.
Thanks be to God.

Call to Worship
Like the welcome smell of cooking from a distant fire; like the feeling of solid ground under a tired swimmer’s feet; like the chatting of the birds after the longest night is the call to worship you, Life-bringer.
We join our hearts and voices with creatures everywhere to praise and thanks.

Hymn VU #325 “Christ is Made the Sure Foundation”

Prayer
Great and loving God,
We give you thanks for this day, and each day, each breath, each moment of life. We praise you for the beauty of your earth, for each creature, each plant each star.
At camp, you help us to learn about nature, help us to care for your creation.
We are sorry for the ways we hurt the earth. Forgive us when we waste paper, or let the tap run without thinking.
We give thanks for the shimmering, slithery creatures of the water. We give thanks for the green growing life of trees and plants. We give thanks for the winged creatures, the song of the birds, and the work of the bees. We are all connected. Forgive us when we forget that we are made to live together. Thank you for your love which is growing in us all, in each branch, each wing, each wiggle, each breath. We turn to your for hope, for truth, and for life itself. Amen.
