Christ Candle Lighting

Call to Worship/Gathering—Lois Preheim

            Leader:   We gather as pilgrims on a journey of faith.

            People:  We come seeking the cloud of your presence as we travel the way.

                            We come seeking your pillar of fire to light our darkness.

            ALL:        Shine in our hearts, O God, with the light of your love.

                          Make your presence known through Jesus the Christ.  AMEN
