CALL TO CELEBRATION Rev. Thomas Ondra One: The mountain top, the shining face, the glowing clothes. All: The voice of God speaking from the cloud. One: Sometimes God shows up in ways we cannot deny.

CELEBRATION RESPONSE“Humble Thyself in the Sight of the Lord” (3x) #2131
UNISON PRAYER God of glory, you took your friends with you when you went to pray on the mountain. You revealed to them the glory of Jesus, your beloved Son, on his way to the cross. We do not live on mountaintops, but we, too, would glimpse your glory in the ordinary days of our lives, and in the community of your Son in which you have chosen to dwell. God meet us here, and shine the light of Christ deep into our lives…
SILENT / PASTORAL / LORD’S PRAYER Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
