CALL TO WORSHIP
In the dog days of the summer,
we gather to worship, to have the fire of the Spirit lit in our souls.
In this season of growth, as the earth puts out food,
we gather to worship, to be fed and energized.
As followers of Christ, we greet each other with Christ’s peace…

WE GREET EACH OTHER WITH THE PEACE OF CHRIST

LIGHTING THE CHRIST CANDLE
We light this candle as a sign of God’s Spirit at work in the world,
may its light brighten our spirits, may the light of God shining through us brighten the world.
Opening ourselves to the breath of the Holy Spirit, we centre ourselves for worship.
