*CALL TO WORSHIP The triune God summons us as a people to be stewards of all life. In deep gratitude to God for the gifts of creation and redemption, we commit ourselves anew to be stewards of God’s grace in every area of human existence. We show by our words and actions the good news that God is stewarding God’s world and people. We are stewards of all life, and we pray for God’s grace and blessings on our words and actions. To God be the glory. Amen. Let us worship God! *HYMN #697

PRAYER OF CONFESSION Caring God, in our anxiousness, we cling tightly to the familiar. Afraid to extend our hand, we bind up our gifts, fearing we won't have enough for ourselves. Loving Jesus, lacking trust in you, we clutch our possessions as if they are the meaning of life. Our hesitancy to share stops the flow of your compassion. Gracious Spirit, we discount our ability and talents and miss what is possible when Christ blesses our offering. Holy God, loosen our closed hands and tight hearts that we may offer the gift we are and the gifts we have, to touch the bruised world. Let your compassion flow through us. In the name of Jesus, our Savior. Amen.
