*CALL TO WORSHIP:
L: "Why are you afraid, you of little faith," says Jesus.
P: We will fear no evil, for You are with us.
L: "Do not let your hearts be troubled," says Jesus.
P: Do not be afraid, for God is always present with us.
*INVOCATION
O Lord our God, in Jesus Christ Your only Word to us You have put hatred to death. Through His death on the cross, You have reconciled us to one another and to You. Transform our world of violence into a world of peace, and our words of hatred into words of fellowship in You. Give us the grace to accept the reconciliation You offer to us all. Amen.
