DRAWING CLOSER – Living and faithful Spirit, the God in whom we live and move and have our being, the God who is made known in Christ Jesus, bless us one and all as we wait on you this day. Please remove from our minds and hearts whatever impediments hinder worship or dampen our joy. Increase within us that holy longing for closeness which can open our lives to fuller delight and to a deeper commitment.

WELCOMING STATEMENT
We sometimes find ourselves like the disciples—knowing, but not understanding the One we worship. We have come together today, perhaps tossed about by the storms of life, wondering what will happen to us. But we are here. And because we are here, the Lord is also here. Let us come in faith that the one who stilled the storm so many years ago will also still the storms in our lives.
