“When I see the world through the other’s eyes, I cannot simply return to my old ways of seeing. This shift invariably leads to repentance, because I see the degree to which my own view had become the only view.”

PREPARATION AND PRAISE
*GATHERING PRAISE SONG “How Great is Our God”
We are so excited that you are Worshipping with us at Gethsemane today.
Give us, Señor, a little sun, a little happiness, and some work.
Give us a heart to comfort those in pain.
Give us the ability to be good, strong, wise, and free,
so that we may be as generous with others as we are with ourselves.
Finally, Señor, let us all live as your own one family. Amen.

Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
