Merciful God, we confess that we have not followed your ways
or trusted your promises. We love only those who love us; we
show kindness only to those who are kind to us; we give only
when we expect to receive. Forgive us, Lord. Fill our hearts
with your selfless love. Change our lives by your matchless
grace. These things we pray through Christ our Savior.
Amen.

AS S URANCE OF PARDON
Leader: God, our Creator, gives us new life; Christ, our
Redeemer, shows us the way; Holy Spirit, our Joy, calls
us to service. This is the good news: the tomb is empty,
sin is powerless, death is defeated forever.
People: On this very first day, and every day, we walk as
God’s people, forgiven and made whole. Thanks be
to God.

“Woman, what concern is that to you and to me? My hour has not
yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells
you.” Now standing there were six stone water jars for the Jewish
rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus
said to them, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up
to the brim. He said to them, “Now draw some out, and take it to
the chief steward.” So they took it. When the steward tasted the
water that had become wine, and did not know where it came from
(though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward
called the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves the good
wine first, and then the inferior wine after the guests have become
drunk. But you have kept the good wine until now.” Jesus did
this, the first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his
glory; and his disciples believed in him.

We leave surrounded by beauty,
to respond, grow, and proclaim.
We serve and love one another
in Christ our Savior’s name,

Psalm 100
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord
with gladness; come into his presence with singing. Know that the

If you’re looking for something different to nurture your spiritual life, stop
in at Siesta Key Chapel for a Jazz Vespers on November 13, at 7:00 p.m.
Vespers, sometimes called evensong, is one of the most ancient devotional
offices of the Christian tradition, begun in the second century as an evening
service of prayers, scripture, songs and meditation, usually at sunset, to
give thanks for the day and prepare for rest. Three local musicians have
arranged a servic e of modal and cool jazz music as a setting for the
contemplative mood of vespers, with unique arrangement of traditional
hymns. Susie Wills discovered jazz vespers in Richmond, VA while
attending seminary and was inspired to bring this gift to Siesta Key Chapel
were she has served as a pastoral intern.
