CALL TO RETURN TO OUR SOULS
HYMN: The Lone, Wild Bird (Sing the Faith#2052)
CONFESSION AND COMMITMENT by John Lewis
Do not get lost in a sea of despair.
Be hopeful. Be optimistic.
Our struggle is not the struggle of a day
a week, a month or a year.
It is the struggle of a lifetime.
Never, ever be afraid
to make some noise
and get in good trouble,
Nothing can stop the power
of a committed and determined people
to make a difference in our society.
Because human beings are the most dynamic link
to the Divine on this planet.”

CHORAL ANTHEM: A Rose Touched by the Sun’s Warm Rays by Jean Berger, text by Maria Brubacher
A rose touched by the sun’s warm rays
All its petals gently does unfold;
So you, when touched by God’s great mercy,
Let joy and gladness win your soul.
Ein Blümlein wenn’s die Sonne spüret
(A rose when it feels the sun)
Sich öffnet stille, sanft und froh;
(Opens silently, gently and happily;)
Gnade dich berühret,
(May grace touch you)
Lass auch dein Herz bewirken so.
(Let your heart also do the same.)
